Wim Crouwel's innovative use of grid-based layouts and typographic systems to produce consistently striking asymmetric visuals is currently the subject of the London Design Museum's exhibition: A Graphic Odyssey (until 3 July); Crouwel was an acquaintance of the Dutch architect and designer Gerrit Rietveld, and has designed the book dedicated to Rietveld's work: Gerrit Rietveld.
