Armand Mevis, Graphic Designer

Mr. Mevis and Ms. van Deursen live and work in Amsterdam, where they began their collaboration after graduating from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 1986. They have been influential in the development of contemporary Dutch design and are known for their intelligent and innovative work for cultural clients, producing the new identity of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, the identity and publications for fashion duo Viktor & Rolf, and numerous books on architecture and design. They also have worked on several Dutch cultural publications, including Metropolis M, and won the competition for the graphic identity for the City of Rotterdam as a designated Cultural Capital of Europe. Their work has been shown in museums and educational institutions throughout the world. Ms. van Deursen serves as head of the graphic design department at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, while Mr. Mevis is a design critic at the Werkplaats Typografie (Workshop Typography), Arnhem. Their long and prolific collaboration has been documented in the book Recollected Work: Mevis & Van Deursen, published by Artimo in 2005. They were both appointed as critics in graphic design at Yale in 2005.
