Actual Size: Experimental Jetset

Experimental jetset

Cooper Hewitt in NYC is hosting a talk with Experimental Jetset on September 16th from 6:30pm to 8:00pm, at their Smithsonian Design Museum. You can get more info and reserve a spot on their website. Definitely an event you shouldn’t miss.

Cooper Hewitt welcomes acclaimed international graphic designers, Experimental Jetset, for an evening of conversation. Experimental Jetset was founded by Erwin Brinkers, Marieke Stolk, and Danny van den Dungen in Amsterdam in 1997. The designers are known for their idiosyncratic, seemingly systematic work, including the new identity for the Whitney Museum of American Art. Work by Experimental Jetset is represented in Cooper Hewitt’s permanent collection and is featured in our exhibition How Posters Work, open through January 24, 2016.
