Wim Crouwel: A Graphic Odyssey
Wim Crouwel: A Graphic Odyssey—Digital Catalogue for iPad is an expanded and enhanced version of the printed catalogue published by Unit Editions and the Design Museum to accompany the Wim Crouwel exhibition at the Design Museum in London. The app offers more than the printed catalogue: as well as a comprehensive overview of the work of the great Dutch master in words and pictures, the viewer has access to a filmed interview with Crouwel, a photographic record of the show itself, and a range of animations using the letterforms designed by Wim Crouwel during his long career. This all-encompassing digital catalogue offers a unique insight into Wim Crouwel's work and archive, as well as the successful exhibition co-curated by Unit Editions co-founder Tony Brook. It's a chance to either discover or relive the exhibition.
