Op basis van Bas Oudt

The project

Bas Oudt is both graphic designer and printer. As a result, he was one of the few teachers who could explain how to get the most out of printing techniques. This is the reason why eight of his former students made a book about him. The book Op basis van Bas Oudt shows a great number of print and finishing techniques applications. The book is not only a tribute to Oudt, the compilers also wish to see his work known to a broader public.

Committee

With the book Op basis van Bas Oudt/Based on Bas Oudt, eight established designers pay special tribute to their former teacher. Oudt’s work was outspoken and unconventional, with special attention to printing techniques. Carried out in a variety of printing and finishing techniques, the works in the book are uninhibited graphic reactions to this.
