About the person

<< | < | Speakerlist | > | >>




In his fifteen years as a professional designer, Diederik Corvers has always focussed on type & typography. In both his commercial and autonomous work the use of type plays a major part, and more often than not he uses his own typefaces. He produces books, posters and corporate identities for a diverse group of clients in the cultural realm. His autonomous works often find a place in the public space, where size is measured in feet rather than points.

Bach, Behinds & Béziers


You are not going to hear a thoroughly theoretical or technical story about type. This will be a story of how a great passion grew in a little boy. A story about music, cars, sex & design; everything a healthy young man loves …
Inevitably we will end with typography; because in type everything comes together: the curves, the rhythm, the sensuality. The goodness, the truth & the beauty!
