About Jos
Jos Buivenga can be passionate about a lot of things. He loves to paint, listen to music, brew an almost perfect espresso… but nothing challenges and rewards him more than designing type. If ever he was stranded on a desert island he would still draw alphabets in the sand, even if there was no one else to see them. He is the founder of exljbris, the one-man Dutch font foundry through which he releases and offers his typefaces. For 15 years, his online friends and fans could follow the development of his typefaces and download the results at no cost. In 2008, while still working as an art director at an advertising agency, he released his first commercial typeface Museo with several weights offered for free. That strategy paid off and Museo became a huge bestseller. Partly thanks to that success he now calls himself a full time type designer. All photos by Jos van Roij

To avoid any confusion: MAFF is not the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, even though we’re huge fans of dogs and food. MAFF is a committed Antwerp-based design studio founded by Claudio Pascariello and Elke Treunen. We are great and easy to work with. No fussing, we do what we say and say what we do. Small projects, big projects, events, you name it. We love to surprise our clients with smart and creative solutions. Have a look!
