Amsterdam graphic design studio Experimental Jetset was founded in 1997 by Marieke Stolk, Erwin Brinkers and Danny van den Dungen. The designers describe their print and installation work as “turning language into objects”. Influences include the rigorously modernist principles of 20th-century Dutch graphic design (they often use Helvetica, a treasured modernist typeface) as well as the more free-wheeling, DIY design sensibilities of the punk movement.
Since 1997, Experimental Jetset has designed the graphic identity for the Maastricht-based architecture institute NAiM/Bureau Europa. This poster advertises the institute’s exhibition on progressive architectural magazines of the 1960s and 1970s, with the staples representing the DIY production of the publications.
