Graphic designer Hansje van Halem (1978) gathered recognition with her
distinctive typography and geometric, almost psychedelic illustrations built
on complex patterns. Van Halem digitally scratches, draws or weaves her
letters and designs stamps, posters and illustrations. Her design-experiments
sometimes lead to commissioned applications for public space, including a
border fence at the dutch schiphol airport. Her work is in the collection of
museum, amongst others stedelijk museum amsterdam

In her lecture Hansje van Halem will give an insight in her design process of
making letter shapes and patterns. With her ‘practise makes perfect’ mind set
the possibilities of working with lines seem endless. She tries to fool the eye
into reading words when you’re not even sure you are actually seeing a letter.
