Specter is a extreme display typeface based on the work by Jan van Krimpen. The project began with the idea to create a serif typeface for small sizes. With this idea in mind, I started a study on the work of Jan van Krimpen. This took me to the Meermanno museum, researching original drawings of the Romulus. During some interpre-tations sketches, the sharp serif’s came out. It ended up as Specter, instead of small sizes the final form should be used for display. Specter is available for licensing. Thanks to Peter Verheul and the Meermanno museum.

Kentekenplaat 2000

Kentekenplaat 2000 is an accurate interpretation of the official Dutch license plate font. The design is based on specimen prints documented in the "Kentekenreglement" of the Dutch government. Both the design and the spacing are accurate to the “Regeling eisen goedkeuring kentekenplaten 2000”. This design was made for a Letterstudio Research at the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague.
