At home with Rietveld Graduation posters


A little taste of Amsterdam here in the woods of Arnhem: two wonderful graduation posters made for and at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, a souvenir in memory of my job as workshop supervisor there.

Right: 2010 design by Johann Kauth & Jonas Wandeler. Left: 2016 collaboration Marie Gjerlev & Medeina Musteikyte & Daphne Spelier, described by It’s Nice That.

Making the poster for the final show is how I graduated myself back in 1998.
