Dutch typographic designer Karel Martens is one of the most influential and enduring designers alive in the Netherlands today. His body of work spans over 50 years and manages to maintain a freshness and timeless appeal. In 1996 he was awarded the Dr. H.A. Heineken Award— the top graphic design award in Holland. He is the founder of the Werkplaats Typografie, a post-graduate graphic design school in Arnhem, NL, as well as a lecturer at the Yale School of Graphic Design, and the Jan Van Eyck Academy in Maastrich, NL. Karel Martens work is often regarded as defining “dutch design” and many of the aesthetic and conceptual characteristics he employs have been widely appropriated by the design community in NL and abroad.
