About

Hello, and thanks for visiting! On this page, you can learn a little more about me and what The Typography Shop is all about.

IngeMy name is Inge and I love designing beautiful things that can be printed on paper.  I started a small company called “We Heart Paper Designs” in 2014, and also started selling some of my designs and design resources under that same name on Etsy.

As months went by, I came to the conclusion that my inspirational typography poster printables would be better off in a more specialized shop where it would be easier for people to find them.  And so “The Typography Shop” was born!  At the same time, I came to realize that, while some love to print at home to create their own posters, others prefer buying finished products.  So, I decided to upload my designs to Zazzle as well.  You can learn more about these two shops on the Shop page.

I’m also pretty passionate about other types of home decoration, do-it-yourself projects, and many other lifestyle related things.  I guess this is what Robert Bilder meant when he said “Creativity is at the edge of chaos”?  Well, this website is where I I’m trying to find some order in that beautiful chaos and sharing it all with you.

Fun Facts

Some fun facts about me, so you can get to know me a little better (don’t expect too many photos, I prefer to be on the other side of the lens!):

  1. I live in the Netherlands, better known as Holland in most other parts of the world. It’s a small country in Western Europe, with Belgium to the South of us, Germany to the East of us, and lots and lots of water as far as you can see in all other directions.
  2. My favorite sport is badminton. Yes, the one with the racquet and the shuttlecock. And no, it’s not just a game you play while camping! To give you an idea: the fastest tennis stroke ever recorded was a 163.4 mph (263 km/h) serve; the fastest badminton stroke ever recorded was a 206 mph (332 km/h) smash. But now I’m digressing…
  3. Photography is another one of my passions. It must be a visual thing!
  4. Folk & Americana is my favorite genre to listen to on Spotify.
  5. I love watching The Walking Dead, the Twilight Saga movies, and pretty much any other TV show or movie about supernatural or sci-fi things.
