I’m a type and graphic designer based in Amsterdam. I first studied graphic design in Lucerne and later worked at a multi-disciplinary design studio in Hamburg. I graduated from TypeMedia in 2007 and founded my own studio in the Netherlands in 2008. For many years I assisted in the extension of the Taz family at LucasFonts in Berlin. Currently I’m a member of the Bold Monday team, and organise letterspace.amsterdam, a monthly series focused on diverse approaches to type within the Amsterdam design community.
My studio practice focuses on typedesign while still maintaining a strong interest in graphic design. My strengths are at their best in combination, for instance, when a corporate identity benefits from a custom type-face.
I’m also available for small requests that take advantage of my expertise as a font engineer.
