Help me finding a name for my typo!

Agenda? (possible name)

The scale ratio is a little wrong that’s why the roman looks lighter than the italic.regata02.gifregata01.gifclick on the pics to view a larger size 

Integrated Conference Antwerp

November 4, 2007

This is all I seem to have remembered from the conference: 

  • do what you want to do
  • don’t wait for clients
  • don’t do what your clients want you to do
  • lie to your clients if you need to
  • design is better when it’s art
  • new comes from the old
  • design is better when it’s unique

Best speakers in my opinion: 

  • Rick Poynor – I wish I could have unlimited Poynor access
  • René Knip – I never get bored to listen to this big kid
  • Ruedi Baur – I asked him for a job
  • Pierre di Scuillo – although I didn’t really undestand anything 

Regata? (possible name)

Maybe it’s the other way around

The summer is over, I’ve found a flat and as promised I am posting the fruit of my typographic labour. Don’t forget to tell me what you’re thinking about it.alega02.jpgalega01.jpg 

Summer in Brussels

August 22, 2007

I still haven’t found an appartement in Brussels and I am sleeping here and there. I will be on the street if I don’t find soon. But otherwise things are pretty good. I am working on my new typeface which will be posted on the blog soon but I also allow a bit of free time to enjoy the summer parties. The following pictures are from a wicked party which was held under the Atomium.  dsc_1548.jpgdsc_1574.jpg

T]M student reunion and H.M.Q.

Have you ever seen so many proud geeks in one photo? Click the pic to get a better view (if you really have to!)


So in the end I didn’t meet the queen. What a shame! However, Ludwig, Sibe and Jan Willem talked about stone carving with her majesty. Apparently she knows quite a bit about typography.

T]M Graduation 2006/07

June 28, 2007

Here are the all the final projects from the Type & Media departement. I am happy to let you know that everyone passed. The presentation went really well, everyone was quite relaxed and confident about their project. I also presented my porject although I was not graduating. I took this oportunity to talk about how I should approach my work during the next semester. My intention is to start a new typeface possibly influenced by completely different kind of construction principles. The jury suggested that I should clearly define the limits of my project. That is: What is the intended application for my typeface? What are the extremes and what falls outside of the limits of my project ? I am still unsure as how I will approach this new assignment but I am really motivated and I am looking forward to see everyone in september.

Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures but my camera is crap!
