INSPIRATION Wim Crouwel – A Graphic Odyssey

Wim Crouwel – A Graphic Odyssey

Design Museum celebrates the work of Wim Crowel, a renown dutch graphic designer, whose career “spans six decades and covers an extraordinary journey from designer, teacher, curator to museum director.” (Design Museum)


Wim Crowel’s work is defined by clarity, structure and the consistent use of grids. He produced an experimental typeface, in the early age of computerized typography. The work that he created for Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam – between 1963 and 1985 – stands out for the systemic use of grids. “This approach gave the Museum’s publicity material huge flexibility, while retaining a recognisable visual language.” (Design Museum)
