This publication is a study of the work, and more importantly the work ethics, and views of two of the Netherlands most outspoken designers of the twentieth century; Wim Crouwel and Jan van Toorn. It contains analysis and evaluations of their design philosophies and attempts to serve as an extension of the book Het Debat (The Debate, [Z]oo Producties, 2009).

Design and written content by Koen Slothouber.
