While over in London recently TPS headed along to the Design Museum where the new Wim Crouwel exhibition has recently opened.
Wim is without doubt one of the most influential graphic designer ever, with a career that has spanned generations and influenced all of them immeasurably.
This exhibition, spanning over 60 years, covers Crouwelʼs rigorous design approach and key moments in his career including his work for design practice ʻTotal Designʼ, the identity for the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, as well as his iconic poster, print, typography and lesser known exhibition design.
The exhibition also highlights Crouwelʼs rigorous design approach exploring his innovative use of grid-based layouts and typographic systems to produce consistently striking asymmetric visuals. If you are over in London make sure you take a look (it's on until 3rd July), it is truly breathtaking and utterly humbling.
If you can't get there here are a few pics.
