Q&A Claudia Klat

Claudia Klat, Spin, Q&A

Born in Zurich, Claudia currently resides in London, where she is Design Director, and partner of Spin Studio. Claudia works alongside SPIN founder, Tony Brook and the team on identities, books, marketing campaigns, motion graphics, packaging and websites. Her personal experience includes projects for the BBC, Crafts Council, Dig Delve, Ministry of Sound, Proa Foundation, University for the Creative Arts, and Wallpaper magazine.

Typographic experimentation is an essential part of the SPIN studios practice. Playful expressions blending the analogue with the digital, making ‘conceptual lettering’. Hybrid type forms that spring from conceptual conceits. The studios aesthetic brings together the rigorous, the refined and the irreverent in a search for new surprising letterforms. The outputs of this process can be seen in an occasional journal published by Unit Editions – SPIN: Adventures in Typography.
