Information

by Frederike Huygen (Author)
‘A book of sketches by a graphic designer is unique. Jurriaan Schrofer did not discard his drawings and he even kept production drawings and other pre-press material. His sketches and illustrations from the period 1950-1990 have a special visual and poetic strength. For this publication a large selection of them has been made, introduced by an essay. The book also contains an extensive presentation in word and image of the design and printing process in the pre-digital era. Frederike Huygen is an art and design historian and has written many publications about design.’

In my previous article about the design work produced for Insituto di Tella, I touched upon the artists Juan Carlos Distéfano, Ruben Fontana and Juan Andralis. After further research, I found a suite of other designs they had produced, including exhibition posters, concert programmes and record sleeves.
This book shows, for the first time, all of Hans Hillmann’s film posters. Unpublished sketches and drafts from his estate along with commentary from conversations and interviews provide an insight into the creative process of the award-winning designer.
