VIP is a  Belgian fashion brand and stands for Very important Pixels. The brand consists sweaters, t-shirts  and tanktops with the most iconic pixel portraits on it.

The Story 

The label was created only 1 year ago (!) by Kristof Saelen, a graphic designer from Mechelen. It all started with a design for some business cards with pixeled portraits of every employee. When Michael Jackson died, Kristof made a pixeled portrait of the King of Pop , that image went viral in no time and it convinced him to make his own collection with similar portraits.

The Technical skill

Originally the inspiration came from his love for 80’s video games. The design takes a lot of time, every portrait is handcrafted pixel per pixel. After making around 10 versions, he brings the best of those 10 designs into 1 work of art.
