Tony Brook of Spin and also Unit Editions kindly invited us into his home to reveal the extent of his admiration of the work of Dutch designer Wim Crouwel: the walls of his house are covered in framed original posters by the designer. In this film, made in collaboration with Order, Brook explains his enduring fascination with Crouwel’s work.

Wim Crouwel, A Graphic Odyssey runs until July 3 at London’s Design Museum. Read our post on the exhibition here.
