Letterproeftuin in RotterdamJuxtapoz // Friday, 16 Sep 2011
Today, much of graphic design is done on the computer. Type, graphics, and lay out are no longer handmade decisions, rather hand-clicked decisions. Letterproeftuin takes it back to traditional graphic techniques and explores the possibilities in this field of old graphic design practices, having designers come together for one week in a self made laboratory.
Letterproeftuin will exhibit the work produced in the laboratory in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, as well as the designers processes. The second edition of this project (happening this September) will feature design work from Bas Koopmans, Matteo Venet, Timon van der Hijden, Koen Taselaar, Freshco, Yorit kluitman, and Jaron Korvinus.
