David Kerkhoff is the founder of the Hanoded type foundry, which is based in The Netherlands. After finishing his journalism studies, David traveled extensively and ended up in Israel where he stayed for some years. David had a lot of jobs – zookeeper, goldsmith, artist and cook (to name a few), but settled on working as a tour guide and photographer.
David specializes in hand printed typefaces and uses brushes, pens, ink and paint to create his – sometimes scary looking – fonts. He lives in the fruit growing area of Holland with his wife, three kids, several Burmese Buddha statues and a mosque-shaped alarm clock from Oman.
