The Gerd Arntz Game contains a selection of 250 from the more than 4 000 pictograms Gerd Arntz drew between 1928 and 1965.
This informative and educational app is initiated and realised by Ontwerpwerk, The Hague, the Netherlands. We do our utmost to make Gerd Arntz's work visible for a large public. It is part of our cultural heritage and we believe his work is of great importance for the world of contemporary visual communication. Other initiatives are the book Gerd Arntz. Graphic designer and the Gerd Arntz web archive.
The pictograms and illustrations you will encounter in the game (match pairs) are scanned from the original prints in the Arntz archive of the Municipal Museum The Hague. This accounts for some irregularities, which resulted from hand printing the linocuts. Our only intervention concerns the background (usually brown or brownish paper) which was whitened to emphasize the contours of the drawings, whilst keeping the authenticity of the outlines intact.
