Wim Crouwel: Typographic Architectures


As a major figure in contemporary European graphic design, Wim Crouwel (1928–2019) has widely influenced the history of the discipline through his extensive practice of design, applied both to the cultural and commercial field. Over the course of his career, he has carried out simultaneously works in the range of typographic creation, visual identities, posters, book design, or scenography.

In the 1950s and for decades, Wim Crouwel, whose influence extends beyond borders of the Netherlands to a large extent, managed to develop an approach to graphic design combining a modernist heritage with pop fantasy.

Abundantly illustrated and abundantly good.
