The preface to Ongoing: G.V.D. Collective With: 43 Young Designers / Bruce Mau: Incomplete Manifesto for Growth states: “Graphic Design Festival Breda proudly presents . . . 43 designers in 43 posters.” These posters are “bundled” in a publication, the produced by three young designers who call themselves GVD, which stands for Guus Grijben, Vera Verberne and David Paans. They graduated from AKVjSt and took on the project of commissioning designers to interpret the 43 cantos of Bruce Mau’s 1998 manifesto. In addition to the typographically distinct images, are texts by Roos Giethoorn and me. The book was distributed at the Graphic Design Festival Breda in 2010.
