I am a graphic and type designer, specialized in anything about type – for printed and digital media.

My new year’s card for 2019 is showcasing a variable font with a freestyle design space reacting on user input. Move your mouse and the letters will dance!

“Simplified with personality”, that’s the new look of publishing house Galledia. I contributed the custom typeface which reduces each glyph to its essence while being cleary legible.

Graphic Design

Behind each label of this exquisite Grappa stands a special moment or feeling – captured in a picture which has then been transformed into an abstract colour palette.

Drawing Type

Text always consists of two layers: the content and the visual aspect. I draw letterings for printed, interactive or animated use which add the right expression to your text. 
I also design and refine custom logotypes.

Producing Type

Typography is the most powerful graphic element to shape a visual design. Defining the right style, width and functionality, a big part of the task is solved and can make the design stand out. 
Besides my own typefaces, I develop custom fonts for identities and publications.

Using Type

I like to develop products which are actually in physical contact with the end customer. Such as packaging designs, magazines or books for example. I seek to define the right story, design, material and finishing for your product – for projects of any size.
