Roosje Klap

Roosje Klap (1973, Amsterdam, The Netherlands) owns a studio 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.

Niels Schrader

Niels Schrader (1977, Caracas, Venezuela) studied Communication Design at the University of Applied Sciences in Düsseldorf and at the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam. In his practice, Schrader manifests himself as a conceptual new media designer and typographer. By referring to the inherent duality of communication and by exploring generic translation processes, Schrader’s work focuses on the contemporary conflict of the media that constantly emits higher loads of data output while becoming more and more irrelevant for the recipient.
