Metahaven—Vinca Kruk and Daniel van der Velden —an Amsterdam-based “studio for design, research, and art”, whose “work—both commissioned and self-directed—reflects political and social issues in collaboratively produced graphic design objects,” [1] was founded by graphic designers and writers Vinca Kruk and Daniel van der Velden in 2007; Gon Zifroni was a partner between 2007–10. A “strategic graphic design agency,” as they put it in an interview with Rhizome, they “make anything between a conference, a publication, an interview, a product, a visual identity, a policy document, or a set of floating appearances on the Internet. We are not only interested in the development of hypothetical image, but also in its realization.” [2]
Vinca Kruk studied at the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam, graduating with a BA in graphic design in 2003. Following this, Kruk worked a researcher at the Design Department at the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht until 2005, where she also served as an advising researcher from 2006–07.
Kruk has held various academic positions; a tutor for graphic design at KABK Academie van Beeldende Kunsten, The Hague (2007), and for editorial design at ArtEZ Institute of the Arts (2007–present), she had been appointed mentor at the IM Master Program at the Design Academy Eindhoven (2010) as well as Senior Lecturer at Otis College of Art and Design, Los Angeles (2011–2012).
