kai udema is a graphic designer and artist based in Amsterdam, NL. 1As a commissioned graphic designer his clients are musea, artists, publishers, and cultural institutions, among others. With a strong believe in visual form—and thus typography, his work concerns printed matter, editorial design, exhibitions, typefaces, and identities. Although working independently, he adheres much value to working in collaboration. 22Apart from specialising in typography, he finds specific interest in publishing as a way of applying a holistic design approach, wherein context, form and text can be treated in a singular interdependent process. Work on this page concerns independent published matter and designed typefaces. 333Meditations On A Black Circle is the name of an ongoing overarching project that covers various visual experiments focussing on the construction and deconstruction of meaning surrounding visual form. The main question in this is how form can be interpreted and used as a language on its own, in a way that transcends ways of viewing introduced by the efficiency/functionality driven paradigm of western society. The aimless principle of meditation is taken as point of departure in this.
