A new look for the Rietveld Foundation
Today the Rietveld Foundation launches its brand new website. This website offers an overview of the life and work of the architect Gerrit Rietveld. It also gives insight into dealing with copyright and provides information on contemporary productions.
Over the past year, graphic designer Koen Slothouber has been working on the new identity and website for the foundation. For the design of the logo, the designer looked with a keen eye at the graphic designs made by Gerrit Rietveld himself. From logos, cards and posters to facade lettering. From those examples Slothouber distilled a typographic approach that he applied in drawing the letter forms for the logo that will be used from today.
