van Blokland

Erik van Blokland runs the LettError office for type design, typography and technology in The Hague. Together with Just van Rossum, he designed several of the early digital classics, ErikRightHand, Trixie, Kosmik and Beowolf (all FontFont). For his own LettError label, Erik drew the award winning LTR Federal, Critter and Salmiak. As one of the developers of RoboFab and the innovative Superpolator, Van Blokland believes software is a natural extension of the design process and deserves to be pushed to the limit. "Make common things fast, make complex things possible". He and Paul van der Laan organise the tri-annual Robothon conference on type design and technology.
