Client
Gemeente Maastricht Sport

 

Description
Maastricht Sport is a department of the municipality of Maastricht. They contacted me to create two special custom fonts for them. After weighing the options of custom- vs modified type, they choose Insider Pro for their complete corporate identity. So I customized two fonts to fit their needs. These both fonts compliment the basic Insider Pro package and spice up the corporate design.

Tornado Fuel

 

Description
The Tornado Fuel brand is over 35 years old and has a very good reputation in the field. Known for their 'red can' they felt is was time to upgrade their Brand Identity. Commissioned by Stoere Binken Design I did a subtile but effective overhaul of the logo type. The small serifs were removed, proportions optimized and the glyphs were unified. All with respect to the 35 year old logo.

Client
Insider Consulting

 

Description
Insider was custom made for Insider Consulting in Düsseldorf, Germany. It’s highly legible at small sizes because of the solid proportions and the well balanced inner forms. It’s optimized for setting longer texts, but also works very well in headlines and leads. With 8 styles (4 weights + italics), the family is very versatile and can be used for typographically complex designs.

Magma Brand Design


Description
In 2005 Boris Kahl asked me to create a personal font for their Bastard Project - Choose My Identity. Instead I made two. Cucaracha is a real bastard. It's provocative, loud and egocentric. The idea behind Bastard was to bring together photographers, writers, illustrators, graphic designers, musicians and typographers to create a solid and unique book that also functions as a work of art.

Siventi


Description
This font was created from the Siventi Products BV logo I designed. Siventi intended to sell custom made lifestyle products. I believe that a good Brand doesn't have to be limited to one specific appearance or color scheme. It should inspire, motivate and guide the user to a higher level. That's why Siventi has a text font called 'Logo Wide' and a set of logo based icons called 'Icono'.
