with patience as if it concerns a knitting hansje van halem fanatically draws letters both digitally and manually since her graduation in 2003. she says she hardly has any knowledge about character forms, but is actually busy with nothing else. during her first years of art school she would get a stomach ache of typography. now she has found her own way to embrace type. letter forms are an assumption, a carefree play field. the game is played by filling in this form with compositions, systems, techniques and (way too much) manual labour. do you do want compliment her? then you don't say 'wow, how beautiful', but 'wow, how much work!'. with her eye for useless detail each character becomes a piece of art, jewelry and an ode to patience.

hansje van halem (1978) works as an independent graphic designer in amsterdam for book design and other printed matter. in 2010 she initiated 'schrank8 - home gallery'. a showcase cabinet situated in her livingroom / studio space. every two months a graphic designer is invited to show his/her portfolio in a solo exhibition. she teaches on and of in various art schools in the netherlands.
