Jurriaan Schrofer - Restless TypographerUnit Editions
Dutch graphic designer Jurriaan Schrofer, worked for the renowned design studio Total Design and was an outspoken figure within Dutch professional design organisations. Most of all he was an experimentalist in letterforms and typography. He was a pioneer in corporate identity; a designer of photo books; and art director of the architectural magazine Forum. Design writer Frederike Huygen describes his work as ‘research into perception, visual effects and the optical illusion of perspective: or the interplay of letterform, pattern and meaning.’ She also refers to him as a ‘computer-designer before the computer’.
