Frank Hartman

CV

Film maker, photographer and graphic designer.

As a technically educated visual artist, I like adding order and subtracting the unneccessary. I look at a problem from different angles. I’m quick to assess the available means and how to use them as opportunities.

I love the craft, and I love the process.

For me, it started in the 80’s. Coding my own games and illustration programmes on a ZX Spectrum homecomputer. Early 90’s was all about pasting typewriter cutouts and photos into skateboarding ‘zines.

So as soon as computers started entering the graphic design realm, I jumped on board, doing graphic design and art direction for several magazines.

Then, when The Internet became a thing, I got into designing and coding websites, which crossed over into creative coding and VJ-ing.

For eight years I ran a studio, specializing in corporate identity design. After that, steering away from graphic design for a while, I got into writing and directing films and picked up photography.

And now I enjoy using all the different things I learned into single- and multidisciplinary projects. As free work, as commissioned projects as well as on an hourly basis.
