The Grid is like the lines on a football field. You can play a great game in the grid or a lousy game. But, the goal is to play a really fine game.
~ Willem Hendrik Crouwel
A hand made typography poster inspired by the graphic language of Wim Crowell – Dutch graphic designer and typographer.
I was introduced to Dutch graphic design during year two of design school. Their clean, modern yet striking typography along with grid based layouts were so influential at that early stage of learning. Wim crouwel’s design style in particular was highly inspirational. I loved the way his posters used asymmetrical visuals & typography systems, while keeping the overall look balanced and interesting.
