The subject matter of the semester is typography. The challenge is to create a variety of fonts by photographic means. In collaboration with the students, Jan developed 5 structurally different type fonts: a design based abc, a historical, a social, a personal and a physical alphabet!

The typefont ‘Jans toolbox’ (see in gallery) is designed and constructed soley of objects found in his archive, which features all sorts of props and technical devices from past photoshoots.
