About me
I am a research-led graphic communication designer, interested in the dynamic between typography, language, and technology. Experimentation is nurtured in my practice as a design tool/research method and the use of typography is a reoccurring theme—looking at type through the lens of speculation and play. My determination is driven by an unimpeded passion, an open mind, and great energy. I am keen to embrace challenges and welcome opportunities.

    EXPERIMENTAL TYPOGRAPHY AND THE NEED FOR THE EXPERIMENT (2018 - 2019)This project is about typographic experimentation and research — and its meaningful application. The design is a reflection, a reaction, and an interpretation of the text concerns within the project. Initial reading and research of Wim Crouwel's manifesto (typography today, new edition, 2003) serve as the base for this design exploration. Etymology and hidden links within language was a focus within the project. ​The purpose of the project is to explore and reflect upon Crouwel’s words and give
