If you visit the beautiful Seduction gallery in Naturalis (Biodiversity Center in Leiden) you’ll find a hot secret room. In this room I handlettered some nice words I have never heard before.
Naturalis (Biodiversity Center in Leiden) reopened her doors with stunning new exposition rooms (tip!). For the ‘Earth’ room (aardezaal) I draw no less than 8751 letters on basalt stone (which came from the major Dutch Enclosure Dam). In the earthroom you can experience the forces of the earth live.
For the gallery ‘Temptation’ in Naturalis, I lettered seven slogans on a advertising column. My favorite is “The smell of love: buy our fragrances here” made in RAL 4003! For more ‘handletters’ I’ve done in Naturalis Leiden see my portfolio and Instagram.
…it’s the 728th birthday of zwitserland! Whooooo!
Some new exciting project I am busy right now, naturally hand lettered! More coming up soon…
Letters bring me to beautiful places: I filmed this at the 12th floor at the Marriott Hotel in Rotterdam. See the letters i wrote (in this building on great height) in my portfolio!
Playing is the language of children. Inspired by this, i played with transparent forms to design the logo of ‘Vrij Spel”. A brand new play therapy* practice of Renate Boeters-de Koning. Flyer and business cards are printed on beautiful paper called ‘PaperWise’. *Play therapy is a form of psychotherapy for children between the ages of 3 and 11 years. Talking about what’s bothering them is very difficult for many children, therefore play therapy is used. Playing is a natural way of communicating: play is the language of children.
I love to write… with every possible ink: this is pure egg yolk. Done with a pipette. Such a pleasure 🙂
Dat was een leuk uitje met het (bijna complete) Serious Lettering team! Pieter van Bold Statements leerde ons de basis van de ambacht: Sign Painting. Letters schilderen in de stijl van de old school Amerikaanse reclameborden. Voor ons 20 Lettering professionals waren de vormen en letters zeker niet nieuw maar wel voor de meeste de materialen: de verf, de bijbehorende verdunner, hoe je ermee omgaat, hoe je de kwast gebruikt en onderhoud etc. Heerlijk die geur van Chromaflo 6000!!
