A Graphic Odyssey is an extensive exhibition exploring the career and works of the renowned graphic designer Wim Crouwel at the Design Museum, London (30 March-3 July).

From a career spanning over half a century, A Graphic Odyssey showcases original sketches, posters, catalogues and archive photography, as well as film and audio material. Especially commissioned Crouwel-inspired works by contemporary designers will also be exhibited, including limited-edition wallpaper designed by the exhibition’s co-curator, Tony Brooks.

 

Wim Crouwel more recently designed the latest English monograph Gerrit Rietveld, published by Phaidon.
