GRAPHIC DESIGN IN THE WHITE CUBE
CONCEPT / DESIGN BRIEF / INVITED DESIGNERS / GALLERY / CITY / BOOK
Linda van Deursen (1961) and Armand Mevis (1963) live and work in Amsterdam, where they began their collaboration after graduating from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 1986. Mevis & Van Deursen work mainly for cultural clients, producing the new identity of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, numerous books on architecture and design, publications and the identity for fashion duo Viktor & Rolf; they won the competition for the graphic identity for the city of Rotterdam. Van Deursen serves as head of the Graphic Design Department at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, while Mevis is a design critic at the Werkplaats Typografie, Arnhem; both are critics at Yale University’s School of Art. Their long and prolific collaboration has been documented in the book Recollected Work: Mevis & Van Deursen, published by Artimo in 2005.
