elkaar kleien vormen kneden
banden sterken steun verlenen
in vertrouwen geven en nemen
kracht verenigen lasten delen
drager voor een roerig leven

Ontroerend Goed

In my graduation project I'm presenting a typographic monument. The pillar features a self written poem in Dutch about trust. This object is my answer to the following question. What does typography mean to me?

Typography is a foundation on which I can trust. Together with poetry it provides me with consolation and support. The letterforms are a continuous source of inspiration. They stimulate me to create new things. Through them I choose to communicate with the world around me. Typography is the bearer of my story.

Working with ceramics and metal was quite a challenge as they were both new to me. Over two hundred tiles were made by hand, sandblasted and mounted on a metal frame which I also made. The idea is that you'll be able to read the poem by walking around the pillar. Both typefaces are especially designed for this project.
