Wim Crouwel, Number 5
Manchester based design agency Truth have commissioned a commemorative birthday poster each year since forming. In this, their 5th year, they asked “design legend and Dutch superhero” Wim Crouwel to design a number 5. He kindly agreed to donate his time and produced this for them.
It certainly conforms to the compositional grid system that he developed while at the Stedelijk Museum (and earned him the nickname ‘Gridnik’)
Each poster is part of a limited edition of 200 and will be given to ‘Friends of Truth’.
