Hans Wolbers of Lava design in Amsterdam does consider himself religious, he burns a candle every time he comes across a church. Ice skating, cycling and Belgian beer are a few of his pastimes and he admits he hates being alone. Through his school newspaper he got involved in graphic design, and editorial design still is his preference: “Where content comes closest to your profession.” Hans talks about the differences in newspaper and magazine design, the issues involved with a redesign and the current size reduction of newspapers. Reader Hans sees himself as a visual journalist more than an art director. We talked with Hans at the Default#1 conference in Vienna, January 2007.
