Daan Jesper Kars is a Dutch typographer, calligrapher & graphic designer. From the age of 13, he has developed his vision on the field of graphic design by studying the profession for more than six years. Driven by the provocative aspect of punk-rock culture, Daan Jesper Kars is keen on providing his works with revolutionary purpose. With typography being his bright companion he shares inner thoughts on nowadays society by using various media such as printed matter, moving images & interactive websites. Confronting digital age Daan Jesper Kars is always providing his works with an analogue input. Currently he is studying at The Royal Academy Of Art, The Hague.

With my works, I am striving for awareness on political topics which are building the foundation for social problems. The provoking aspect in my work is assembled by conceptual thinking and in-dept research, as for example my works Frenemy and Protest Sans. The conscious and thoughtful use of color, image and typography are forming the pivotal aspact of my work. My work is aiming to provide people, who have lost trust in their personal believes, with the confidence and willingness to stand up and fight for their rights. To my mind, a work is only finished once it evoked a reaction, may it be a discussion, a question or an agreement. I want to change narrow minded among us into open critical thinkers, not by handing out an answer, but by posing a question. Depending on the content I work with printed matter, moving images or interactive websites. I believe that a well designed project can be the beginning of
a revolution.
