Based on Bas Oudt – 2/3 – Book, Presentation & Show

Seven graphic designers pay tribute to their former tutor. The design tutorials of Bas Oudt, who taught at the Rietveld Academy between 1990 and 1996, were for many of his students an extraordinary experience.

Based on Bas Oudt – 1/3 – Background & Process

This is Bas Oudt, one of my former teachers at the Gerrit Rietveld academie.

Being both offset printer and graphic designer, Bas Oudt (1956 -2014) was one of the few people who really knew how to create graphic design work that is informed by printing technique in both a physical and creative way. In that respect he’s been a rolemodel who stimulated me to do what I’m doing today.

Po – Shinroh Ohtake

Po – Shinroh Ohtake & IDEA Poster Collection
Text (in Dutch) Harmen Liemburg for Items 2/2009

Shinroh Ohtake is een buitengewoon figuur in de hedendaagse kunstwereld van Japan. Zijn oeuvre omvat schilderijen, tekeningen, sculpturen, collages en de publicatie van kunstenaarsboeken. Daarnaast maakt hij muziek en schrijft hij. En dat alles in een constante, overweldigende kwaliteit en kwantiteit. Op zijn grote retrospectief Zen-Kei (japans voor ‘in volle omvang’) in het Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo, najaar 2006, was er voor het werk dat in Po is verzameld slecht een klein bijzaaltje in het museum gereserveerd.
