Experimental Jetset is a small, independent, Amsterdam-based graphic design studio, consisting of Marieke Stolk, Erwin Brinkers and Danny van den Dungen. The trio, who met and collaborated during their studies at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, established the studio in 1997.
Focusing on printed matter and site-specific installations, Experimental Jetset, who are best known for their typographic solutions, have completed projects as diverse as the new graphic identity for the Whitney Museum of American Art (2013), to the iconic ‘John & Paul & Ringo & George' t-shirt print (2001).
Their work has been featured in group exhibitions such as Graphic Design: Now in Production (Walker Art Center, 2011) and Ecstatic Alphabets / Heaps of Language (MoMA, 2012). Solo exhibitions include Kelly 1:1 (Casco Projects, Utrecht, 2002) and Two or Three Things I Know About Provo (W139, Amsterdam, 2011). In 2007, the Museum of Modern Art in New York acquired a large selection of work by Experimental Jetset, for inclusion in the MoMA’s permanent collection.
Members of Experimental Jetset also teach from time to time at their alma mater the Gerrit Rietveld Academie (Amsterdam) as well as at the Werkplaats Typografie (Arnhem).
