MONTBLANC X MISTER ADAM
Mister Adam (aka Adam Oostenbrink) is a Dutch graphic designer, printmaker, collaborator and design teacher based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. From his studio/printshop he is creating multi-disciplinary works for a wide range of clients. Using both digital and analog techniques, his type-o-graphic style is unstrained, colorful, lively and outspoken.
Mister Adam is curious and interested in many things. He defines his work into four categories that are now closely intertwined:
Graphic designer: as a designer, he works for a variety of clients, from large and commercial to small and cultural, in a team or solo, he works digitally and makes printed products.
Printmaker: since his studies, he spent a lot of time in the printing office. This has been triggered by the need for experimentation and the love of the physical work, old-fashioned graphic techniques, working with inks and paper.
Collaborator: he would not exist without other people. Fellow designers, poets, dancers, artists or neighborhood kids – all cooperation is instructive for him. It leads him to new ideas, new work, new projects, and new concepts.
Teacher: at the ArtEZ University of the Arts Zwolle, Mister Adam works with students from different departments: Graphic, Illustration, Comic and Animation Design. His goal is to teach students craftsmanship.
The one constant in his work is typography. The love for characters and language transcends all of the above categories. Twenty-six characters, that’s all he needs.
