I'm Dianne, a graphic designer based in Amsterdam. I've been working on freelance and self-initiated projects since 2013. My work is characterized by conceptually strong designs in which typography plays a central role. This results in experimental and coherent visual identities, books, websites, animations, posters, magazines and exhibition designs.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Besides my education in Graphic Design at ArtEZ Academy of Arts Arnhem, I have a BA in Philosophy from the University of Amsterdam. In my work I like to combine elements from those two different fields. I'm one of the founders of Alinea publishers (together with Lizette van Boom), publisher of philosophical books that invite reflection on contemporary society.

In 2017, I developed and participated in Letters and Ideas for art organization Extrapool. By bringing together (typographic) designers and language philosophers, this project explored language as the interface between graphic design and philosophy. One of the three resulting publications can be viewed here.

In 2015 and 2016, I developed and taught the course Design and Philosophy at ArtEZ.
