Ko Sliggers




Around 1980 Ko Sliggers was one of the iconoclastic young designers who contributed to what has become known as the ‘Dumbar style’. After two years at Studio Dumbar, Ko worked as an independent designer, became a professional cook in Rotterdam, Italy and France, switched back from food to design, producing challenging visuals at Studio Anthon Beeke and in 2002 set up a one-man studio in Lalleweer, in the northern province of Groningen. Although he was trained by Chris Brand at the St.Joost Academy in Breda, Sliggers is not part of the Dutch tradition of literary, historically inspired type design. Ko’s work has always stood out for its energy and unconventionality. (Jan Middendorp in ‘Dutch Type’) From 2008 Ko lives and works in Italy.
