Bob Noorda Design
This volume is the last graphic work produced and wholly conceived by Bob Noorda.
Noorda was a Dutch designer and architect who naturalized as an Italian citizen. Starting in the 1960s, he came to the fore as one of the main forces behind the renewal of twentieth-century Italian graphic art.
Noorda worked in the Dutch capital until 1954, when he decided to move to Italy to settle in Milan. There, he worked on the signage and visual features of the city's subway system (1964) and which won him his first of four Compasso d’Oro. In 1965, along with designer Massimo Vignelli, he set up the graphic agency Unimark International, famous for using a very modern approach to design for international clients such as IBM, Pirelli, Olivetti, la Rinascente and the New York subway system, for which they redesigned the entire communication system.
