About

Johannes Verwoerd (Amsterdam, 1985) is a (graphic) designer / artist. His work is a happy rendez-vous between art, architecture, design, interactive design and language. Within and outside of these disciplines he creates a body of work that is straightforward, open and fearless, with room for personal interpretation, doubt, humor and playfulness. With a strong preference for the conceptual, he connects art and design with everyday life and creates a world where a condom-wrapping can be a work of art, a drawing can be a logo, and a movement can be an identity.

Johannes initiates autonomous projects and works for clients in the cultural and commercial field. He creates books, drawings, campaigns, collages, identities, interactive installations, invitations, light sculptures, logo’s and websites. Johannes works for and with everybody who doesn’t violate the law.

Johannes previously worked for Anne Claire de Breij, Atelier Néerlandais, AVL Mundo, DK Home , Edward van Vliet, Elephant Magazine, eQ+, Frame Publishers, Foyer, Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, Lard Buurman, Letterenfonds, Museum Hilversum, Pinkeye, Pleinvrees, Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie, UVA and XPEX (among others)
