Rutger Paulusse (29), or Gwer, is a complete sucker for type. Directly after he finished St. Joost in 2009, an education for graphic design, he started freelancing in Amsterdam. He then moved to New York to work for illustration agency Vault49, and recently moved back to Amsterdam. Though Paulusse especially likes to work with authentic materials, such as pencils, paper and ink, he also works with 3D software. This makes Paulusse a versatile designer, working on all sorts of illustrative typography; from custom lettering to CGI illustrations. One of Paulusse’s most recent jobs, via Ogilvy and Artbox, was making 30 custom ‘word images’ for a campaign for the Ford Ka – some sketches here. Other work of Rutger Paulusse can be found on his website.
