As well as being a talented photographer, Maurits Rozema is a graphic designer we’ve got our eye on. The Dutch creative divides his time between the two practices and often brings them together, as in the beautifully simple publication made with friend and collaborator Rebecca Worth, First Summer. Maurits was also spotlighted in design site Fontanel’s book Dutch Design Talents 14 we featured earlier this year.
Maurits’ design experience comes off the back of eight years of studying and working in both the Netherlands and China for Kummer & Herrman, as well as Foam’s team of in-house creative thinkers Foam Lab. He has also led personal projects from book to exhibition design and art direction. Aside from his pared-down photographs and minimal publications, we really liked Maurits’ posters, particularly the series of hand-drawn ones based on the J.M. Coetzee book Diary of a Bad Year. And we hear he’s just moved to London!
