LETTERFORM ARCHIVE | Under Construction: Jurriaan Schrofer’s Letters

July 7, 2020

Jurriaan Schrofer (1926–1990) was one of the most prominent design practitioners, educators, and public advocates in the Netherlands after the Second World War. Schrofer’s career was most remarkable early on for his photography book designs, but beginning in the 1960s, his constructed lettering projects occupied an increasing part of his attention, study, and practice. Maurice Meilleur will survey a selection of Schrofer’s remarkable work, and use diagrams and animations alongside Schrofer’s own sketches and drawings to discuss a few examples of these lettering projects in greater detail. He’ll then place Schrofer’s projects in the larger context of constructed scripts, to suggest what we can learn from them about method, creativity, and meaning in design generally, and type and typography in particular.
