Barbara Hennequin is an Amsterdam-based graphic designer, working in both the commercial and cultural fields. Her work consists of the design of visual identities, websites, books, magazines, brochures, and other publications. In addition to her practice she give lectures, teaches and gives workshops on a regular basis.
Her academic background in communication and language has a big influence on the way she thinks about and approaches graphic design. Her work is characterized by clear and structured typographic design solutions with distinct graphic shapes.
Together with PolakVanBekkum and Sean McGinnis she created the website for the 250 Miles Crossing Philadelphia NavDoc. The animated background of the site immediately pulls you into the world of Google Earth. The round icons that represent the GE-recordings form an abstract visual grid of the map of Philadelphia. At the same time they give a rough indication of the location of the recording and are the visual portal to the site.
