The idea for this alphabet appeared in 2013 during the time I was studying typeface design at the Royal Academy of Arts in the Netherlands. At that time I drew the initial ‘Sun Helen’ sketch. Now I am very happy that I got to develop it into a set of A to Z letters as a contribution to the 'Dutch Alphabets.

‘Dutch Alphabets’ is a portfolio containing 47 broadsides featuring new samples of lettering and writing by today’s most significant ‘Dutch’ lettering artists, type designers, calligraphers and sign painters. All the contributors are working and/or educated in the Netherlands. Compiled by Mathieu Lommen & Peter Verheul, this collection was published in a limited edition by De Buitenkant Publishers, Amsterdam.




 
 

Initial sketch was made as a gift to one of my classmates.
Here it is on the wall next to Krista Radoeva's and my table in the classroom.


 
 
  
 

If you are lucky the ‘Dutch Alphabets’ portfolio is still available for purchase.
