Just Van Rossum

Type, Code and Movement

June 15, Saturday 17:00 – SALT Galata

Interesting things happen at the intersection of technology and design. Just van Rossum will talk about how he applies programming to graphic design, type design and animation, showing practical and unpractical examples.


Just van Rossum (1966) works at the intersection of (typographic) design and programming. He is fascinated by coded animations and dynamic typography. Back in 1990 he developed the self-changing Beowolf typeface together with Erik van Blokland. More recently he collaborated with graphic designer Hansje van Halem on the identity for the Lowlands music festival. Just works as an independent software developer and teaches at KABK in The Hague.
