Ben Bos: Form and Content


“Doubly gifted, they say,” is the title of a brief autobiography that Ben Bos wrote a few years back at the request of the publisher. In fact, “doubly gifted” is an understatement. In the course of a career that spans over fifty years, Bos has not only proved himself to be a versatile, meticulous, and bold designer and an excellent writer, but he also served as an editor, draughtsman, photographer, teacher, and organizer. For twenty-eight years he worked for Holland's best-known design agency Total Design (now Total Identity), and the design team that he led invariably was the studio’s most efficient one. Form and Content presents an overview of Bos’ smart and clear work.
