In 2018 Bühne Burgäschi requested a new identity for their newest production, the Swiss folklore operetta GRÜEZI. As a reference, the operetta organisation pointed to classic Swiss tourism posters from the 1930s and '40s. Inspired by the typography on these posters, I created a variable display typeface and two text versions. Alpen Display and Alpen Text will be further developed and released as Bergen Display and Bergen Text.
THIS IS AFRICA
Collaborating with Esther de Boer, I designed a new corporate identity for Ghetto Radio Nairobi, that extended into the umbrella organisation THIS IS AFRICA shortly thereafter. We looked for a sturdy and prominent typeface that also had a personal flavour. Ghetto Radio's position as a strong community builder for different populations within the city is symbolised by the capital ligatures included in the custom typeface.
Also together with Esther de Boer, I designed a house typeface for her client DE TONEELMAKERIJ, a theatre company for kids and teenagers. Knowing Esther’s design preferences, I included a lot of icons in the typeface that became a key part of the identity.
