Dutch Profiles: Roosje Klap

00:08:50 0
Here at a printer in Haarlem, graphic designer Roosje Klap will review the first prints of her new stamp design for PostNL.

Roosje Klap owns a studio for visual communication, mainly graphic design. The studio researches the experimental boundaries of custom fit design. With Roosje Klap a letter type can be unreadable, a book can turn out to be a sculpture and a stamp can become a drawing-by-numbers-drawing.

Roosje Klap mainly works for a clientele in the cultural field: museums, galleries, art publishers and artists. For her design of the Encyclopedia of Fictional Artists and for her Rijks Academy Year report 2011 she received a European Design Award.

Next to her work as a designer Roosje works as a tutor at The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, and at the Jan van Eyck Academy.

A recent assignment is her design for a Dutch art magazine with the mysterious name Mister Motley.
