ABOUT







Paul van der Laan

Dutch designer at Enschedé, born in 1972. He studied at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague where he graduated in 1997, and again in 2000, the second time with a postgraduate degree in typography. Second prize at the 3rd International Digital Type Design Contest by Linotype Library for Linotype Rezident. Founding partner of Bold Monday who lives in Den Haag. In 2003, he became a professor in the Type & Media program of the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in Den Haag.

At Kombinat Typefounders, he designed Feisar (1999), a futuristic display typeface which has been extended to the multiline Feiar Express in 2008, about which he writes: Feisar Express could be called a retro-futuristic inline script typeface family. He also made Flex (1999-2000, a sans family, done for Bold Monday) and Sambasko (1998). At his company Type Invaders, he leads us through the development of the pixel font Outbox (2000). At the Enschedé Font Foundry, he is (part-time) involved in font production and maintenance of the website.

At Typotheque, he created the chess figurines (2003) to match Bilak's Fedra Sans Alt for the German Chess publisher Schachzentrale Rattmann.

He assisted Mike Abbink with FF Kievit Pro (FontFont) and co-designed FF Kievit Slab with Abbink in 2013. In 2019, Abbink and van der Laan released FF Kievit Serif, which has wide apertures and large counters that make it quite legible.

At House Industries, he created Chalet Comprimé.

In 2009, he and Pieter van Rosmalen created Audi Type (via MetaDesign), which replaces the old Univers-based Audi Sans. In 2010, this type was part of the global Audi identity package that won a Gold "Corporate Design award". Other corporate typefaces were created for USA Today, NBC Universal, and Autodesk.

In 2012, a new logo and house style was unveiled for the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. The new typeface, named de Rijksmuseum, was specially developed for the Rijksmuseum by typographic designer Paul van der Laan. ATypI 2013 presentation about Rijksoverheid.

Oskar. They write: Oskar, designed by Paul van der Laan, is a typeface inspired by Dutch architectural and advertising lettering from the early 20th century. Particularly the style of lettering that was painted on walls and shopfronts, or executed in metal on buildings. This kind of typography did not exist as metal printing types, but was instead painted manually by sign painters, or drawn by architects. Initially the typeface was designed in 2002 for the lettering of a monumental school in The Hague, designed by architect Jan Duiker in 1929.

GE Inspira Sans and Serif (Mike Abbink, Paul van der Laan and Pieter van Rosmalen, Bold Monday) won an award in the TDC 2015 Type Design competition.
