At the interior biennale in Kortrijk we saw the work of Marjolein Delhaas which we liked very much. Marjolein Delhaas is a Rotterdam based graphic designer. She strives to create work that is functional, but also attracts the eye. Her never-ending search for minimalism in layout, typography, paper and color results in work that can be described as raw industrial without ever losing a touch of refinement. Bold typography versus a thin elegant line.
The persistence to analyze, organize and create systems evolved in 2008 in an annual collection of pared down planners. A playground to experiment with different techniques and materials results in clear, graphic and functional everyday systems, which also serves as objects that are exquisitely beautiful.
