Melle Hammer of the Netherlands has a website that opens with an image of himself
and text describing his passion for design, poetry, and theater design (shown above,
top). Users simply click anywhere on the page to see more work. The website tran-
scends simple advertisement by describing Hammer as a typographer, designer, and
teacher “lingering between art design and advertising” and “easily seduced to design
a table, a chair, or a stage. Every now and then, a movie or a poem comes out.”

To navigate the site, the user is asked to click anywhere on the opening page. An addi-
tional window is launched, which may feature any number of things including pictures
of himself in performance art, a series of tickets he designed, or a small puppet theater
he created for the streets of the Hague, (opposite, bottom and this page). With the
diversity of Hammer’s creative interests, a website is the perfect format for him to
show his seemingly unrelated work in a cohesive presentation.
