INTEGRATED 2007 ANTWERP DE SINGEL
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
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.
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.

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!
