Michiel Schuurman (Amsterdam, 1974) graduated from the graphic design department of Amsterdam’s Gerrit Rietveld Academie in 2002. As a graphic artist, he specializes in typography, pattern and poster design, embracing a fearless and bold approach. After graduating, Schuurman’s career took off with his remarkable poster design – challenging the medium’s restrictions and communicative value.

The base of his graphic work is a certain logic – whether natural, scientific or historical - like geeky algorithms, natural phenomena or historical patterns. 

With his bold and intricate graphics, often screen-printed by himself, he created a strong fanbase. Many of his designs are part of public collections including the one of Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. His illustrations have been featured in publications such as tech-magazine Wired and the Dutch quality newspaper De Volkskrant among others. 

In 2012 Schuurman became a textile designer for the legendary Dutch wax fabric company Vlisco - known for their intricate prints. Rather than working from their heritage, Schuurman applied his pattern-skills to create abstract and radically new designs for the company. With success – his prints are being worn across the world.
