‘Ontwerpen voor kinderen’ (Designs for children)
Client: Kossmann & de Jong, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam
Lettering design for an exhibition about the 730 playgrounds that are designed for Amsterdam between 1947 en 1978 by the famous architect Aldo van Eyck (1918-1999).
His climbing frames have very characteristic forms and I’ve designed an ‘Aldo van Eyck playground’ typeface, based on these forms. The text information was placed on a big blackboard where children could draw on.
