I wanted to be an architect when I was four, car designer when I was eight and in highschool I was handdrawing typographic posters in the party committee. I wanted to ‘make things’ and was always looking for ‘beautiful’.

I studied industrial design and graphic design in art school. My first job was at an advertising agency in the south of Amsterdam where I learned how to make things ‘communicate’. Later I was a roving alchemist in search of graphic simplicity, truth and a splash and preferably all at once.

I published typefaces through FontShop, I started a design office with Pam and Peter, I was a teacher at art school, I made computer software, I worked briefly with my friends at Qua Associates and later at design machine Koeweiden Postma.
