ABOUT DANIEL MARKIDES

Coming from traditional design crafting visual identities i noticed
i had the greatest fun tinkering with type and logo’s.
Before i gratuated from Willem de Kooning academy i studied some
years at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague.
There i learned and appreciated calligraphy and lettermaking.
Now i’m getting back to that craft mixing it with digital design and
all the techniques i picked up along the way to give letters character and
communication power to put them out as logo’s, one off pieces, custom lettering
and possibly typefaces.
