--------------------------------------
THIS IS THE SCHOOL AND THE SCHOOL IS…
--------------------------------------

Publication and exhibition design for the alumni exhibition 'This is the school and the school is many things' at the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague, featuring work of a selection of alumni of the last six years. The publi­cation is structurally build up in the way one would visit an exhibition: first one reads the introductory text, then browses through the exhibition for the works that speak to them (Spot­light), look at more work from those artists (See More) and if hungry for more information reads up on their work and background (Read More). Design in collaboration with Rob van den Nieuwenhuizen.

FACE TOMORROW 12” MOVE ON
--------------------------------------

Artwork for Dutch indie rock band Face Tomorrow’s acoustic LP ‘Move On’. This is their goodbye LP as a band. The mixed emotions about the ending of an era are the base of the design. The punch holes on the outer and inner sleeve reveal the vinyl’s A (blue - happy) and B (red - sad) label on smiley-bright-yellow vinyl. The glossy black stickers on the front and back cover were hand-stickered by the band themselves. Because of the possible combinations with the eyes (circle, cross or dash) and mouths (happy-smile, sad-smile and curvy undecided one) the artwork is different on every LP, which makes each one unique and an extra special goodbye gift. Pressed in a limited edition of (signed) 300 copies. Design in collaboration with Rob van den Nieuwenhuizen.

ANNEKE HYMMEN

Identity and website design for photographer Anneke Hymmen.

--------------------------------------
THIS IS WHAT WE ARE…
--------------------------------------

Design of the Accreditation report 'This Is What We Are / Is This What We Are' for the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague. The report consists of two books: one book is the body of the report focusing on main content, with separate photo sections; the second book is the appendix featuring attachments and tables. Design choices made reflect a methaphor of the creative process of an artist or designer, a non-lineair, organic and experimental way of working that is erratic and shifts back and forth in contrast to the report itself that has a solid structure from the index at the start of the book to the colophon at the end. Design in collab­oration with Rob van den Nieuwenhuizen.

--------------------------------------




--------------------------------------
CULTFEST
--------------------------------------

Identity design for Cultfest, an underground cultural festival held in the cellars and wharfs along the Oudegracht canal that runs through the center of Utrecht. The locations and surroundings shape the festival and were therefor the inspiration for the iden­tity: shapes of cellar entrances, munic­ipal shields and the water that is ever present. Design in collaboration with Rob van den Nieuwenhuizen.

--------------------------------------




--------------------------------------
CHARACTERS OF JANTE
--------------------------------------

Publication design for photographer Ursula Jernberg. 'Characters of Jante' features a series of photographs from an ongoing project about the infamous ‘Law of Jante’ that is deeply embedded in Scandinavian culture - in essence a Scandinavian version of the English ‘tall poppy syndrome’. The publication is a 4 page fold-around with a 36 page unbound book inside. All the photo pages inside are loose sheets folded into one section. It is printed in full-colour waterless offset and the cover has a soft touch finish.

ITEMS DUTCH DESIGN GRADUATES 2012
--------------------------------------

Exhibition and website design for the ITEMS Dutch Design Graduates 2012 exhi­bition at the Machinekamer (Strijp-S area) in Eindhoven during Dutch Design Week 2012. Design by Almanak and exhi­bition design in collaboration with denieuwegeneratie architects.

--------------------------------------
DUTCH SUBSIDY CUTS
--------------------------------------

Poster design for the Graphic Design Festival Breda (GDFB) 2012. The numbers mentioned on this poster are subsidy amounts per year for a selection of cultural institutions (fine arts, design, architecture and e-culture) as advised by the Raad voor Cultuur (the Dutch Council for Culture) in Slagen in Cultuur, Culturele Basis­infra­structuur 2013-2016, and the Stimuleringsfonds voor Architectuur (The Netherlands Archi­tecture Fund) in Advies Meerjaren­plannen 2013-2014. As a result of these cuts a vast number of cultural insti­tutions will most likely disappear completely from the Dutch cultural landscape. Design by Almanak.

--------------------------------------




--------------------------------------
FACE TOMORROW 7” WORTH THE WAIT
--------------------------------------

Artwork for Face Tomorrow’s acoustic 7”, featuring acoustic versions of “Worth the Wait” and “My World Within” as a preview for their upcoming acoustic album release. Available in three vinyl colours: white, purple (Special edition for Record Store Day 2012) and orange (Special edition for Groezrock 2012). Design in collab­oration with Rob van den Nieuwenhuizen.

--------------------------------------
DEPOT BG
--------------------------------------

Series of three A0-posters, made for the opening of Depot BG: a project, exhi­bition and meeting space located on the ground floor of the former city archives of Amsterdam. The monumental building has several floors that are currently being used by creative professionals and small businesses who - in a smaller group - curate and manage the ground floor collabo­ratively. The spaces of Depot BG are available for meetings, exhibitions, workshops and the likes.

--------------------------------------




--------------------------------------
CULT DEALER ENZO
--------------------------------------

Identity for Cult Dealer Enzo, an event and workshop place in one of the wharf cellars in the centre of Utrecht, the Netherlands. Cult Dealer Enzo has three counterparts: Cult, an experimental lab for creative talent in Utrecht. Dealer, as a dealer for concepts, formats and dreams. And Enzo, which is a surprise everytime, for all parties involved. Each counterpart is paired up with its own cult-like icon and can be used seperately or in any preferred combination. Design in collaboration with Rob van den Nieuwenhuizen.

--------------------------------------




--------------------------------------
WHAT MOVES ME
--------------------------------------

'What Moves Me' is a collaboration with photographer Ursula Jernberg for the exhibition 'Getuigen' (translates as Witnesses) in Het Nutshuis in The Hague. For this exhibition Jernberg made a series of photographs inspired by a quote from world famous choreo­grapher Pina Bausch: "I am more interested in what moves people than how they move". The publication features a number of quotes by (the photographed) dancers of the Royal Conservatory of The Hague on what moves them in their dancing. The publication is (mostly) set in the font 'Move', that was designed for this specific project.

--------------------------------------




--------------------------------------
PLAN B
--------------------------------------

Plan B is a book featuring interviews with 28 teachers of the Graphic Design department of the Royal Academy of Arts (KABK) in The Hague. Together with graphic designer Kees Bakker, I initi­ated and designed the book. We inter­viewed the teachers who had taught us in the four years we spent at the KABK and asked them to talk about and expose their vision on graphic design of today, their own work, their successes and their setbacks, the influence of teaching on their own work, favourite students, other interests, ideals, etc. This resulted in a book designed and financed by ourselves.

MINUS A TYPE SPECIMEN
--------------------------------------

A type specimen of the Minus typeface. About the typeface: When people read text they don't see letters, but only content and information. While reading your eyes move in automatic pilot mode, linking multiple fragments of infor­mation about letterforms together at an overwhelming pace. With this in mind the 4 weights of the Minus were designed: Minus 1, Minus 2, Minus 3 and Minus 4. In three steps the letters are broken down to their most minimal recognisable and therefor functional form. This is done by emphasizing their most charac­teristic and unique parts, yet retaining their basic shape. At what point do the fragments and parts of letters no longer suffice to be able to recognize a letter­form, or: when is a letter no longer legible and does it become pure form? In the specimen the four weights are used consecutively from Minus 1 to Minus 4. The challenge is to finish the story, and get to the denouement of the story, despite increasing difficulty in legibility.

--------------------------------------
MIXED PRINTS
--------------------------------------

A mix of print work: a poster and cards for the opening of project space Depot BG, a riso print for 'Fernweh' exhibition, ALL WEATHER silkscreen print & tote bag for 'International Style Station' exhibition, ON OFF silkscreen print for opening of 'Kapitaal' in Utrecht.

STUDIO PROFILE

--------------------------------------

In 2009 I, Barbara Hennequin, started working as an independent graphic designer, working in both the commercial and cultural fields.
My work consists of the design of visual identities, websites, books, maga­zines, brochures, and other publications. In addition to my practice I give lectures, teach and give workshops on a regular basis.

In 2011 I was one of three co-founders of a design collec­tive named Almanak. Under this name we collaborated on larger-scale projects. I also co-founded Depot BG: pro­ject, exhi­bition and meeting space located on the ground floor of the former city archives of Amsterdam.

A little bit more on my background: in 2009 I graduated as a graphic designer from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. Before that, I graduated as a Master of Arts in Communication Studies (2005) and as a Bachelor in Communication and Information Studies (2004) at the Univer­sity of Utrecht (UU).

This academic background in communication and language has a big influence on the way I think about and approach graphic design. My work is charac­terized by clear and structured typographic design solutions with distinct graphic shapes.

In every project I strive for a balance between content, concept, aesthetics and practical aspects of a design.

I would love to take on or participate in interesting projects. If you have any questions or would like some more infor­mation, please feel free to contact me.
