Roots cahier Donald Janssen
Publishing House [Z]OO Productions presented on Thursday 3 October at Pulchri Studio in The Hague the new Roots Cahier about graphic and exhibition designer Donald Janssen.
Exhibition design is a relatively young design discipline that in recent decades has been developing strongly. Graphic and industrial designer Donald Janssen has for fifty years been part of this development, first as an independent designer and then with his design office in The Hague. In the 1970s he started as a freelance designer at the Haags Gemeentemuseum. Gradually several museums in the Netherlands and abroad followed, from which frequently long-term working relations emerged. He is a passionate designer who is constantly looking for new ways and sustainable solutions within the framework of a clear design concept.
Roots is a collaboration between [Z]OO producties and Wilco Art Books. The aim of the series is to generate attention for the roots of the Dutch graphic design culture. Roots is wholeheartedly supported by The Association of Dutch Designers (BNO), Pictoright and Wim Crouwel Instituut.
Roots online Dutch Graphic Roots is a blingual website – English/Dutch – with stories about the post-war generation of Dutch graphic designers.
