Born in the Netherlands, where he still lives today. Received his typographic education in the nineties in England and the Netherlands. Since 1999 his time is exclusively devoted to improving the world one typeface at a time with his companions at the pan-European type foundry Underware. Not willing to accept limitations easily. Still dreams about brain-to-brain communication. Interested in languages. And dialects. And slang. And script. And alphabets. And type. Checks email manually.
Born in Barcelona, from where escaped a few years ago. He started his interest in digital typography in the early nineties and since 2005 his work is exclusively devoted to custom type design and font production.
Self-taught, writes small tools to make his and other's life easier and exciting and to flee from the software’s dictatorship.

Only recently it has become clear that from now on type designers aren’t any longer just designing outlines of fonts, but are mostly designing relations between outlines of fonts. Therefore interpolation will become increasingly relevant in the future of type design, and will logically be an essential aspect within this workshop.
During this workshop we’re not only going to explore the design of letters (hands-on), but also explore the space in which those letters relate to each other (brains-on). Designing the design, as well as designing the design space these designs live in. And that – well… if everything works out – leads to another, innovative way of looking at your design.
