Tot onze verrassing troffen we onszelf aan op interessante en inspirerende buitenlandse designwebsites en -blogs. NIet alleen werden we erg blij van alle mooie plaatjes die onze naam omringen, maar ook van de teksten waarmee het NAGO toegelicht wordt.
Dutch Design Archive
Nederlands Archief Grafisch Ontwerpers (NAGO) is an incredible archive of Dutch design, including Ben Bos, Pieter Brattinga, Total Design, and Wild Plakken.
317 Dutch posters - Heck yea!
Its funny, I actually counted all the posters just so I could have a number for the headline. I most likely miscounted, but oh well on to the post. Nago has put together an amazing Dutch poster gallery for you to see. Includes works from Total Design (Wim Crouwel), Otto Treumann, Pieter Brattinga, Willem Sandberg, Ben Bos, Jan van Keulen and others. The website is based in the Netherlands so if you can’t read Dutch just click on the pretty pictures.
NAGO - Nederlands Archief Grafisch Ontwerpers
I’ve had this saved in my “links to blog” folder for a while now and I think it’s time to share this gem with everyone else. I forget how I found NAGO but it’s basically a large archive of graphic design work coming out of the Netherlands. The archive contains a lot of great work that you can get lost in for hours. It’s a visual gold mine.
