Bie Mariën (1992) is a graphic designer based in Herentals, Belgium. She gratuated in 2016 with a master degree in design. Her projects are situated within editorial design, visual identities and others. She gets a lot of inspiration while traveling & following other designers, mostly she gets inspired by architecture and furniture design. And oh! she has a thing for nordic design and cats. For the works on Muro, Bieke was inspired by the swedish word ‘mångata’. A untransferable word (she love this) which means ‘the reflection of the moon on the water that looks like a road or path’. She made her own interpretation on it by playing with window shadows/light, which for her also suggests a road or path that makes a connection to the oudside world. Often these untransferable words describe a feeling or moment. Ironic fact: a high contrast light/shadow van makes her feel a non-explainable kind of feel.
