About Lucia Catharina (Ulc)

Some people have #foodporn. I have #fontporn, #colorporn, #uiporn, #gridporn, even #kerningporn (it’s a thing). I love hotkeys (who loves hotkeys?).

I love December because it’s the month Pantone announces its Color of the Year. A good gradient can make my day. Atomic design changed my life. I would relish being a fly on the wall of a Scandinavian design studio. I’m pixel-perfect to a fault. And I strongly feel that, even at age 83, Massimo Vignelli was taken from us too soon.

I’ve also always been a strong believer that what you choose to do in your free time should probably be what you do professionally. So here we are.

When I’m not in front of my iMac

I’m usually cleaning, and buying too many plants and flowers (unfortunately as much as I’d like to think I have a green thumb, I don’t). I enjoy a good healthy mix of folk bands, billie holiday, and classic 80s dance tunes.

My fiance and I live in a canal house on an island – the balmy, tropical Java Island in Amsterdam’s Eastern Docklands – where we play a ton of chess and yahtzee and drink good wine. We also have a cherub 1-year-old daughter, Siena, who rocks our world.
