Wim Crouwel: Mr. Gridnik

Until March 2020, an ode to the iconic Wim Crouwel, will be showing at the Stedelijk Museum, showcasing the designer's undeniable impact on his field and typography as we know it.

Wim Crouwel (1928–2019), co-founder of the first multidisciplinary design agency in the Netherlands, Total Design in 1963, is one of the best-known Dutch designers. He is internationally renowned for creating projects for numerous organisations and institutes including the Van Abbemuseum and the Stedelijk Museum, designing fonts such as the 1967 New Alphabet and many company logos. Crouwel was also a notable spokesperson for the profession, and was always forthright in sharing his own views. He was the sole designer of the Stedelijk Museum’s visual communications from 1963 to 1985.
