This was our tribute to the Dutch designer who marked the history of typography over the course of his long career.

On the occasion of Wim Crouwel’s eightieth birthday, sixteen creatives from our studio represented the years of his life, from 1928 to 2008. From Mickey Mouse to the German battleship Scharnhorst, from the Vespa to Woodstock, from Mazinga to Nirvana, the graphically-reworked icons of sixteen five-year-periods gave life to an immortal work printed in only two copies on the most resistant material in the world: Corian.

The homage was personally delivered to the designer in his home in Amsterdam.
