Daan Rietbergen’s geometric letterforms

The work of Daan Rietbergen is amazingly bold, the complicated geometric letterforms and solid blocks make for a strong look.

He has produced a typeface called Nespor, created by drawing adjacent straight lines with a fine liner so that the resulting angles produce letterforms. This complex web of line makes these letterforms more like works of art in themselves. Daan Rietbergen has gone on to present them in such a way, from graffiti versions on the streets of Utrecht, to exhibiting.

At Studio Dumbar, I started to work with grids and systems that determine a visual identity. These aspects had a great influence on my personal work. If you look at my personal work, grids and system have become indispensable – the rules that I impose on myself during design sometimes outweigh the legibility.
