Alex van Warmerdam.
Over the years, the Dutch Film Days Foundation (now called the Netherlands Film Festival) invited many guest designers to make campaign posters. These included not only famous graphic artists but also Dutch celebrities who played a role in the Dutch film industry. The EYE collection, for example, has designs by writers Jan Wolkers (1989) and Hugo Claus (1988).
Very diverse and always extremely original were the movies and the poster designs by Alex van Warmerdam. The posters for his films De Noorderlingen and Grimm were award winning posters. He also made the 1990 festival poster. His personal and distinct style, with rigid figures, clear straight lines and schematic representations of characters and activities are strongly reminiscent of his films.
