Nicolien van der Keur
Nicolien van der Keur is an independent type designer and graphic designer based in The Netherlands. After her education in graphic design she worked for several years with agencies and publishers before she founded her own studio in 1999.
Her experience with type during her work with complex books, magazines, and corporate identities sparked her interest even further in how typefaces and typography reinforce each other. This curiosity directed her to the University of Reading (UK), where she received an MA degree in 2007, specialising in designing a typeface for dictionaries and other complex, high-density text environments. Nicolien's special interest is in the combination of designing typefaces and then working with them to produce a desired effect.
Nicolien published Sirba with TypeTogether.
