Suzanne Bakkum: Ah Oh Wee

Work / Graphic Design

Stunning textural graphic design from Dutch creative Suzanne Bakkum

Suzanne Bakkum is a recent graduate of the Royal Academy of Art in the Hague where she studied graphic design. She follows in an incredibly long line of talented designers to have passed through the city and already has an impressive portfolio to show for it. Her work is concerned predominantly with pattern and texture, creating typographic, abstract and geometric forms from complex arrangements tone and line.

In many of her pieces it’s the negative space that deals with the business of communication, with words and images taking form between dense areas of pattern. But it’s the patterns themselves that are most exciting, demonstrating an acute understanding of a huge number of methodologies that can be used to create aesthetically delightful results. Of course she can set type and layout with the best of them, but it’s these experimental pieces that set Suzanne apart from the majority of graduates leaving education this year.
