Recent Acquisitions: Digital Typography at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum

If you are a typography geek (like Jeff), you may want to head to New York’s Museum Mile and check out the Cooper-Hewitt‘s recent acquisitions of digital typography. “This installation of five recently acquired graphic works will explore post-modernist trends in typography. On view will be examples of lively and expressive type fonts developed by designers as a counterpoint to modernism’s rigid and impersonal sans serif type. The objects include: Dutch designer Wim Crouwel’s 1969 poster ‘Visuele Communicatie Nederland, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam,’ the 1994 issue of Emigre magazine, published by graphic designers’ Rudy VanderLans and Zuzana Licko, and featuring the work of Ian Anderson for The Designers Republic; Cornel Windlin and Gilles Gavillet’s 1999 poster ‘Game Over;’ Dutch designer Michiel Schuurman’s 2007 poster ‘HorseProjectSpace Presents: Ritual Tendencies;’ and Marian Bantjes’ 2006 ‘Fox River Promotion Booklet.'”
