ADCN’s Hall of Fame Presents Jacques Koeweiden & Paul Postma

Club ADCN, 11 July 2017


We are excited to present on Tuesday July 11th, an evening with design legends, partners and friends Jacques Koeweiden & Paul Postma. Jacques and Paul were inducted in the ADCN Hall of Fame at the Stedelijk Museum in December 2016. They will join us at Club ADCN to present a night about the past, present and future of design – sharing the secrets and stories behind their most iconic projects and presenting creativity that inspires them. They have invited two guest speakers whose work they admire: Fred Kramer and Tirso Frances.

Jacques Koeweiden and Paul Postma co-founded the influential design bureau Koeweiden Postma. In 1987 they started working for various clients in theater, film and art. In the early Nineties the studio was successful working for, among others, the Photographers Association of The Netherlands (PANL), the famous nightclub “Roxy,” Toneelgroep Amsterdam and BNA (Branchevereniging Nederlandse Architecten). They initiated the bi-annual Mind the Gap festival – centering the new role of design – and worked for big brands such as Nike, HEMA, Dutchtone and Versatel. In addition they made the visual identity for the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. The duo received countless Dutch and international awards for their work, among which ADCN Lamps, D&AD Pencils, Dutch Design Awards, European Design Awards and awards from the Art Directors Clubs and Type Directors Clubs New York and Tokyo. Since recent years Jacques & Paul both have their own design studios. Studio Jacques Koeweiden is focused on brand identity and design, and Postma Motion Design is specialized in motion graphics. In addition, Jacques and Paul still work together on a project basis, they recently won a pitch for Rabobank with PKCdesign.
