Captivated by graffiti since his childhood, Nils has later developed a sense of fascination for lettershapes. During Nils undergraduate studies at Muthesius art school Kiel, type and typography became his primary interest. The school’s type design classes led by Albert-Jan Pool had played an important role in defining Nils next step – the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague. Nils Thomsen successfuly completed his Master Degree at postgraduate course Type]Media in 2010.
The graduation typeface “Meret” at Type]Media, has been further developed by OurType and joined the collection in 2011.
