Lxy Typeface


Typeface, Programming

Lxy is a dynamic display typeface made entirely with the Python programming language in Drawbot. Many of its elements are flexible, such as the weight, spacing and 'density', which can be changed easily. For the moment it does not exist as a font outside Drawbot, but I hope to release it soon as a True or Open Type font. The source code can be found here.

Sodom & Gomorrah:
The Gaze of Western Media


Video, Publication, Poster

Sodom & Gomorrah is a research based project consisting of a short film and two publications and a poster. Its aim is to encourage thought and debate about the role on the media while dealing with foreign issues. This project focuses specifically on the e-waste dump issue in Agbogbloshie, Ghana. The publication contains a selection of articles that invite the reader to reflect on how the media can be manipulative and abusive. The works were exhibited the 7th of January 2016 in the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague.

Typographic Fundamentals: Display



Typographic Fundamentals: An Unconventional Guide is a 43 chapter publication covering all the terms and topics of typography. Each chapter was designed and written by a different student of Rob van den Nieuwenhuizen’s typography class, at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague. My chapter was about display typefaces, and included an extensive explanation as well as examples of the different kinds of display typefaces.

The Fantastic Enemy



Submission for The Hague Municipal Archive’s poster contest. The assignment consisted in the concept of the enemy, encouraging us to reflect upon the idea that there is no such thing as absolute enemyship, but rather a unity of opposites. I approached this with the topic of identity, attempting to portray the multiplicity of identity by combining more than 50 photographs taken from different angles.

Twin Posters


Poster, silkscreen

Assignment for Rob van den Nieuwenhuizen’s typography class, at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague. We were asked to pick one of our favourite posters with which we were assigned to make a new poster. We were not allowed to use any element that was not in the original poster. My choice was Wolfgang Weingart’s “Typographic Process, Nr 5. Typography as (Painting)”.
