A 500-meter long timeline takes you from the train station to Havenkwartier. The timeline consists of 15 information design highlights, designed by Jan Hamstra. They’ve been selected by German art historian Sandra Rendgen, author of the book ‘The History of Information Design’ that was recently been published by Taschen.
The illustrations show from what context the revolutionary designs originated, long before the profession of ‘graphic designer’ came into existence. Accompanied by Sandra’s explanations, the illustrations form an inspiring introduction on your way to Graphic Matters.
