Background

Architype Ingenieur was inspired by Wim Crouwel’s late 1950s exhibition catalogues and posters, where he created a few geometrically constructed, simplified letterforms. For the 1960 Venice Biennale, Dutch entry poster, he made ‘olanda’ grid-based with 45-degree angles, influenced by his boyhood fascination with naval lettering. A subtle variation appeared in the Stedelijk Museum catalogue for painter Jean Brusselmans; and several dot matrix versions followed. The themes and systems in these early letterforms are encapsulated in a new four weight family, as an Architype Collection.
