Roosje Klap

Roosje Klap is co-head of the Graphic Design department at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) and teaches at both the Bachelor Graphic Design (Playlab elective and Reading Group) and at the Master Non Linear Narrative programmes.

Roosje Klap (1973, Amsterdam, The Netherlands) owns a studio (roosjeklap.nl) for visual communication, mainly graphic design, which she has set up after her Graphic Design studies at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. The studio researches the experimental boundaries of custom fit design, peculiar yet collaborative. With Roosje Klap a typeface can be unreadable, a book can turn out to be a sculpture and a stamp can become a drawing-by-numbers-drawing: she has a strong affection for unorthodox but systemised type design. Klap is also core advising researcher at Jan Van Eyck Academy in Maastricht.
