In 2005, Kai Bernau and his partner, Susana Carvalho, founded Atelier Carvalho Bernau in The Hague, The Netherlands. They design reading experiences, from typeface to interface. They are, incredibly, Bernau says, still in business. In 2014, the partners co-founded the collective Open Work, where they explore the subversion of design patterns and participatory design. Bernau graduated from KABK‘s Type and Media before it was cool and has designed a few typefaces since: for use in his studio, for clients, and for you! Since 2011, Bernau teaches type design at ÉCAL’s MA Type Design.
