Welmoet Wartena - Designer

London

Overview

I am a book designer, graphic designer and educator based in London. My work includes books, exhibition graphics, publicity materials and private commissions. I work with several publishers, galleries and organisations, mainly in the arts and culture sector. I am passionate about art and book design, experimenting with typography, searching for new and exciting approaches to design and to capture the content of a book. In my design practice collaborations with artists, curators, writers or editors are a very important aspect. I try to challenge myself and am curious to use both traditional and modern techniques. In addition to my design practice, I research, write, design and publish limited edition artists' books and pursue my artistic and typographic research. I have a strong interest in art, language, poetry, typography and the history of book design and artists' books and I am fascinated by concrete poetry. Within my work I am exploring the relationship between typography and language, and the form of a book and experimenting with design, techniques and materials. Throughout my work (or collaborations), I strive to create depth and curiosity.
