You want to learn more about typography, type or handwriting, but don’t know where to start?

You’ve come to the right place, let me help you.

I have 12 years of experience in teaching type, typography and handwriting to over 1000 people from different ages, cultures and backgrounds.

I notice that a lot of you find typography difficult.

My goal is to make you feel confident, and hopefully make you love it just as much as I do.

I believe in a ‘hands-on’ approach: typography, type, and calligraphy all need practice.

Theory is a good and necessary start, but the process of MAKING is essential to discover things for yourself.

Writing a letter by hand forces you to slow down. Not only in a practical way. It also slows down your thoughts, your observations, and the story you share.

If you would like to experience what it is like to find a FUN letter on your doormat, please sign up for my newsletter!

Every week I will randomly pick one person who will receive a handwritten letter. If you are picked, I will contact you for your address. I will ONLY use it for sending the letter. 

From a young age, I have had a deep interest in letters. However, I missed a steady basis in the underlying system.

Britt made me understand this.

Her enthusiasm, knowledge and wide range of references —from classic examples to playful experiments— showed me the origins of the letter shapes. However, and this is more important, she showed me what they could be, without a value judgment about what is right or wrong.
