Wim Crouwel: a graphic odyssey

Amsterdam, London,

Sport & Wellness,



Britain’s first retrospective celebrating the work of Wim Crouwel, considered one of the most important twentieth-century designers.

Wim Crouwel: a graphic odyssey The work of Dutch graphic designer Wim Crouwel will be on exhibit at the London Design Museum starting on March 30 2011. Regarded as one of the leading designers of the twentieth century, Crouwel embraced a new modernity that captured the essence of the emerging computer and space age of the early 1960s. His designs for a number of computer fonts earned him the nickname Mr Gridnik, from the name of one of his fonts. The exhibition will cover key moments in his career and his rigorous design approach, his innovative use of grid-based layouts and typographic systems to produce consistently striking asymmetric visuals and his graphic images for important Dutch entities such as the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, as well as the founding of the “Total Design” studio.
