Letters 1

Guido de Boer teaches Letters at the Graphic Design department of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK).

Guido de Boer (1988, Naarden, The Netherlands) graduated as graphic designer in 2011 at the University of the Arts in Utrecht (HKU). Right after his studies he started to work as independent graphic designer and artist.

Guido’s tools are letters, which he almost always makes by hand. So, themes as spontaneity, directness and imperfection always appears in his work. With his collective High on Type he organised several Type- and Calligraphy events and traveled through a number of non-Latin-writing-countries to teach and learn about other letterforms.
