'Ideograms' by Leon van Schaik

Posted on 30/09/2013

The Foundation has published a major book on the Ideograms of Leon van Schaik. Professor Van Schaik is one of Australia's leading design academics and contributors to international design discourse. The drawings selected for inclusion in this book span a period of more than a decade - from 2001 to the present - and have been curated from the author's personal collection of over two hundred ideograms created in a series of small notebooks and sketchpads. The ideograms offer a sampling of van Schaik's critical speculations, reflections and insights into the mysterious and elusive world of creative design practice and thinking. The Foundation is planning a future series of books on artists and works in the Collection.
