Roosje Klap owns a studio for visual communication, mainly graphic design. The studio researches the experimental boundaries of custom fit design. With Roosje Klap a letter type can be unreadable, a book can turn out to be a sculpture and a stamp can become a drawing-by-numbers-drawing.
Roosje Klap mainly works for a clientele in the cultural field: museums, galleries, art publishers and artists. For her design of the Encyclopedia of Fictional Artists and for her Rijks Academy Year report 2011 she received a European Design Award.
Next to her work as a designer Roosje works as a tutor at The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, and at the Jan Van Eyck Academy.
A recent assignment is her design for a Dutch Art Magazine with the mysterious name Mister Motley.
Here at a printer in Haarlem, Roosje will review the first prints of her new stamp design for PostNL.
