July 1–July 26, 2008
This exhibition features graphic posters and an interactive, multimedia installation by NLXL, a design studio for visual communication and interaction design based in The Hague. NLXL experiments with the possibilities of combining visual and interactive elements within single design solutions. Content, form, and technique are carefully considered in each and every solution. NLXL designs logos, corporate and visual identities, websites and web identities, event styles, forms, posters, animations, books, content management systems, digital presentations, and other digital applications. Their diverse range of clients includes cultural groups (Royal Academy of Art, The Hague), corporations (Nike Europe), and media outlets (MTV), among many others.
The exhibition coincides with TypeCon2008, a conference that explores type for the screen, printing history, Dutch design, type in motion, Arabic calligraphy, the American Arts and Crafts movement, experimental typography, and much more.
Organized by Ben Van Dyke, assistant professor, UB Department of Visual Studies.
