This is the official shirt for the Whatbar series of events we’re hosting with the guys from Whatspace. It is designed by Michiel Schuurman and will be presented on Whatbar #1, january 23rd, in NS 16, Tilburg. Make shure to be there!
Michiel (Amsterdam 1974) studied graphic design and typography for two years on the Koninklijke Academie voor de Beeldende Kunsten Den Haag and graduated as graphic designer in 2002 on the Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam.
His work is almost always about altering typography to the point where it fully replaces image. The sometimes psychedelic designs are strongly based on classic typographic laws and the pure contrast between black and white.
