Mark van Wageningen

Mark van Wageningen is the founder / director of Novo Typo, a (typo)graphic design studio and type-foundry based in Amsterdam. Mark studied graphic design at the Amsterdam Graphic School and at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam before he founded Novo Typo in 2012. The Novo Typo font collection is a wide variety of typefaces designed for a number of international clients. The design output of Novo Typo is a mix between client related jobs and self-initiated projects. In January 2015 Novo Typo started the Typewood project. Typewood is a research project about designing, deconstructing and transforming multi-colored digital typefaces into wooden type for letterpress. Typewood jumps from digital to analogue techniques, from cmyk to rgb colormodes, and from computerscreen to letterpress.
