Dutch Design in The Hague and Beyond

This summer I spent a month travelling and working in the Netherlands, discovering Dutch design. For the most part I stayed in the Hague, this is a collection of some of the graphic design work I found in the streets. The Hague is a very creative city with it’s famous Royal Academy of Art.

While I was in the Hague I went to a Zeloot exhibition. Zeloot is a graphic designer who works almost entirely on silkscreen posters, and has an incredible collection of brightly coloured, joyful and surreal pieces. You really have to see the posters up close to get the full experience because the colours are so fantastic, many using fluorescent inks.

I found this brochure in the library made by Studio 75B. The colours came out really nicely, I think they used Riso print. I like how they used paper that has a different texture on both sides and how the manuscript typography creates a strong contrast with the photographs.

Really nice tram design & logo design for the Royal Picture Gallery, which exhibits Dutch golden age paintings. The colours really exude royalty, by one of my favourite Studios, Studio Dumbar.
