Architype Brochure Solid was released by The Foundry. Architype Catalogue Solid contains 1 design. p > Architype Crouwel is a collection of typefaces produced in partnership with Wim Crouwel, following his contract with The Foundry, to recreate his speculative alphabets as digital fonts. Crouwel's the majority of acknowledged work was for the Van Abbe and Stedelijk museums (1954-- 72) where he established his credibility for radical, grid-based design.

Architype Brochure's soft 'padded' letterforms were initially created by Wim Crouwel for the Stedelijk museum's 1970 exhibition of sculptor Claes Oldenburg. Crouwel said, 'When you look at Oldenburg's work, with all those soft things, it gets into your system, so you attempt to integrate that feeling in the style. Claes was very taken with the brochure's typeface, and asked me if I would do the entire alphabet for him, so I did. I cut it all out in pink paper and pasted it together'.
