studioHendriksen is an Amsterdam based graphic design studio, founded by Chantal Hendriksen. The studio's projects evolve from a deep affinity with contemporary art, which manifests itself in collaborations with art institutes, museums, galleries, individual artists and photographers as well as a wide range of self-initiated projects. The studio always likes to challenge the profession's autonomy in its collaborations with various other disciplines and all its projects are characterized by a conceptual and experimental approach.
Chantal Hendriksen (1978, Delft) studied graphic design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and received her MA degree at Werkplaats Typografie in Arnhem. The studio is a continuation of her former successful collaboration with Marijke Cobbenhagen. Together they initiated and co-founded the art magazine 'You Are Cordially Invited'. Accumulative to her practice Chantal is active as a teacher at the Royal Academy of Art in the Hague and has taught at among others the HKU University of the Arts in Utrecht and California College of Arts in San Francisco. The combination of different roles is an essential part of studio Hendriksen’s practice.
This website tries to give some insight in Chantal's practice, the methods and interests. Showing this with sketches, ideas, projects, finished works and proposals completed for several commissioners. Hopefully it will give an overview of what the studio is capable of. If not, don’t hesitate to ask for a verbal presentation or explanation. We’re happy to do so in any kind of setting; a possible cooperation, project or commission, a lecture or workshop.
