Portrait par Alex Blouin -

In 2011, I graduated from the Design Department of Gerrit Rietveld Academie's Sandberg Instituut. My tutors included Daniël van der Velden, Rob Schröder, Nina Folkersma and Max Bruinsma.

As part of my thesis project, I launched a design criticism magazine based on dialogue. It experimented with open content, where criticism engaged with an online public. Dialogue was then edited into a printed magazine you could hold in your hands.

In 2009, I consulted with Mediamatic on the visual identity, typography, interface and exhibition design for Mediamatic Travel, an open source travel network for creatives.

Properties font became the identity for Mediamatic Travel. Properties is the result of experiments with Typogeography, a strategy for site-specific identity.
