Hannah Kloosterman, graphic designer based in Rotterdam (NL)



     Hello! My name is Hannah Kloosterman and I am currently studying Graphic Design at the Willem de Kooning Academy.
     I’d like to see myself as a designer of stories. I am fascinated by other cultures and people whom I not always necessarily associate with at first sight. I like to make these stories, which often have subjects that can be complicated, manageable. For me the greatest strength of design is simplifying and getting a grip on complex reality and giving others insight into it. This translates into designs with a love for typography and paper.
