The International Society of Typographic Designers announces a new series of lectures this week, the first of which is quite a coup: Wim Crouwel on 3 June. The Dutch legend will also be introduced by 8vo’s Hamish Muir, who will talk about the studio’s work that was commissioned by Crouwel in the early 90s

Crouwel’s lecture, entitled Designer and Client, will take place at the The Royal College of Physicians’ Wolfson Lecture Theatre, 11 St Andrews Place, Regent’s Park, London NW1 4LE (7pm – 9.30pm).

Hamish Muir will open proceedings with a talk on 8vo‘s work for Crouwel when he was director of the Museum Boymans-van Beuningen (1989-1994). A Flickr set of some of the work produced for the museum can be found here.

Tickets are £16 (£12 for ISTD members, £10 for students) and are available in advance from

Attendees will be invited to celebrate the ISTD’s 80th birthday with a complimentary drink in the Dorchester Library after the lecture.

Tickets also includes entry to a raffle for the chance to win a very special prize which will be presented by Crouwel himself.
