At What Design Can Do 2012. Photography Leo Veger.

Harmen Liemburg (NL 1966) started his career as a cartographer. To keep his appetite for graphic representation alive, he sought a larger menu of expression. He went to the Gerrit Rietveld academy and became a member of a new breed of designers, one that is closely linked to the world of art, education and museums.

Liemburg is obsessed with screen printing, and uses the medium to create unexpected results. His approach emphasizes the narrative aspect of images and the occasional beauty of everyday vernacular like logos and packaging design, that are interwoven through collage techniques.

His projects are primarily linked to the transformation of exhibition spaces through the use of printed matter, connecting digital tools to analogue methods of printing. In addition he co-supervised the screenprinting shop at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam from 2010 to 2015.
