Céline Hurka

Type Designer

Céline Hurka is an independent type designer based in The Hague, NL. In her practice, she aims to play with, question, and break the conventions that have prevailed for the past hundreds of years. She is fascinated by how meaning is attached to form and transforms over years of usage in different contexts. Letters are cultural signifiers that add meaning to a text far beyond the words they form. Céline’s typefaces are deeply personal projects and are inspired by her interest in history, innovation, pop culture, nature, and universal emotions.
