The debate : the legendary contest of two giants of graphic design by Wim Crouwel( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first English translation of a famous 1972 debate between Dutch graphic designers Wim Crouwel and Jan van Toorn, a public clash of subjectivity versus objectivity at Amsterdam's Museum Fodor that helped set the stage for bold philosophical showdowns to come in design culture. Held in response to an exhibition of Van Toorn's work at Stedelijk Museum, including student posters protesting the Vietnam War--in an era of youth culture and increasing resistance to authority, capitalism, and the power of media--the stakes were aesthetic, ethical, and politically charged. Crouwel defended his approach of neutrality and austere rationalism, attention to typography and worksmanship, and professionalism in service of the client's message. Van Toorn argued for his use of chaos, collage, and photographs of everyday life; that a designer's ideas, personality, and political commitments are integral to the work. Dialogue on The Debate has reverberated in graphic design circles for the four decades since, and it is often referenced in modern design criticism as a key marker for the philosophical positions that continue to define the profession. The first English transcript of this key event in design history will allow a contemporary audience to discover the ongoing relevance of The Debate in an increasingly complex visual culture."--The publisher's description
Wim Crouwel : modernist by Frederique Huygen( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A new, detailed monograph about Wim Crouwel, graphic designer and exhibition designer who defined the look of post war Holland with his studio Total Design. His modernism was reflected in countless posters and catalogues for the Stedelijk Museum, in stamps and experimental work like a sensational computer alphabet. In the seventies Crouwel evoked a lot of criticism but nowadays he is seen as a cult figure and an inspiration for many. The book is richly illustrated and shows us very much of his fine works. The text focuses on his career and views, gives informative backgrounds on his work, and places it in the right context"--Publisher's website
