HANSJE VAN HALEM, AGE: 26






In 2003, Hansje van Halem graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, and her work has since covered just about every typographic application there is: reports, catalogs, invitations, typefaces, exhibition typography, newspapers, and magazines. (“Mainly in black and white,” she admits.) Van Halem’s clients have included VPRO, a Dutch television broadcasting company; Droog Design, an industrial design collective; Amsterdamse Kunstraad, a municipal department for art and culture; and Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.
