We sat down with Harmen Liemburg, Dutch silkscreen wizard with a keen eye for color and detail. Beside his work as a visual designer and design-writer, he also runs the silkscreen workshop at the Rietveld Academy, together with his old teacher Kees Maas. He tells us why he loves the craft of silkscreening so much and how he started his career as a cartographer. He has a big fascination for both the United States and Japan, which he tries to visit as often as he can. No wonder his design heroes are Japanese and American as well. We end this talk with the question how he would like to be remembered, and he replies with an interesting paradox about work, life and time. Recorded at What Design Can Do 2012, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
