Typographic Night III

We are thrilled to announce the third Typographic Night at Page Not Found, curated by Trang Ha and Paulina Trzeciak.

“Typographic Nights” are a space for graphic designers and the public to gather around understandings and misunderstandings of the graphic design process. Audience members are asked to bring texts which they would like to see transformed into visual works. These could be either small pieces of their own writing, borrowed fragments, or hand-picked inspirational quotes. The invited designers and typographers will materialise these texts into beautiful printed matter on the spot, demonstrating their skills and knowledge. Works will be printed the same night, ready to take home. Together we will reveal the curiosity, fun, improvisation and care that are part of graphic design, from choosing a typeface to applying analog materials, and much more!

This Typographic Night features live design performances by Céline Hurka, Katharina Nejdl and Lotte Lara Schröder.

Type and graphic designer Céline Hurka gained a Master’s degree in Type and Media from the KABK in The Hague. In her practice, she is involved in type design, lettering, book design, photography, writing, and research. For her, typography is what connects these disciplines. She pursues an experimental and research-based approach, using new technologies to explore and question typographic conventions. Currently, she is building her foundry catalogue. Some of her previous projects are available on Adobe Fonts, DaFont and WiseType. She has been lecturing at various academies such a the Royal Academy of Art, the Hague and Konstfack Stockholm and presented her work at international conferences like AtypI Tokyo and Typographics New York. 

Lotte Lara Schröder (Amsterdam, 1988) navigates the study of ecological natural phenomena through a narrative voice emanating from the realm of personal experience. Balancing her practice on the border of pragmatic and poetic, her works manifest as drawings, printed matter, soundworks/installation and video. Touching upon her background in design, her works are often underpinned by graphical frameworks and formats. She is the founder of design studio Speculative Press.

Katharina Nejdl studied at Sandberg Instituut, UdK Berlin and ZHdK. In 2019 she co-founded ­ magazine, a digital literature magazine exploring new ways of digital reading, writing and publishing. She lives and works between Amsterdam and Berlin. What does a digital publication look like? How does reading on the web become interactive? What do participatory posters look like? How does logo design become generative? Can AI design posters? Katharina Nejdl deals with these and other questions in her work. As a graphic designer and developer, she is interested in using digital technologies – such as web, AR and AI – as graphic tools.

Trang Ha is a multidisciplinary designer/artist based in The Hague (NL). She uses the language of design to observe and address cultural complexities presented in modern society. Her frequent subjects are food, community, alternative knowledge, storytelling and ecology. In her practice, Trang underlines the importance of collaboration, an environment in which different thoughts can mingle and “contaminate” each other to achieve a more layered and inclusive outcome. Besides her personal works, Trang is also taking commissions in the field of creative coding and catering. She finished her BA Graphic Design at the Royal Academy of Art The Hague (KABK) in 2020.

Paulina Trzeciak is a visual artist and designer with a wide range of artistic practices. Paulina is currently based in The Hague (NL), where she is finishing her BA Graphic Design at the Royal Academy of Art The Hague (KABK). Paulina’s practice is highly influenced by her academic background, as seen in her frequent incorporation of social theories and political perspectives. In the field of design, her main interests are conceptual design, digital culture and curation. Besides these interests, she is equally fascinated by the use of fictional elements in design. She believes in its power to explore possible futures by creating speculative and alternative scenarios, shaping the complexity of the social-political landscape.

Starts at 18:00. Entrance is free and on a walk-in basis, no reservation is required.
