Michiel Schuurman

An eyeball-popping collision of Op-Art, Vasarely, psychedelia, offset printing and experimental type, Dutch designer Michiel Schuurman's work is not for purists or the hungover. Schuurman studied typography at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, proving grounds of some of Europe's finest graphic designers.
Describing posters - the main area of his work - as 'the ultimate two dimensional challenge'. Schuurmann says that 'how sparrows swarm, how the waves in water are created and how light breaks' all influence his designs.
