The ABC of De Designpolitie researches the mentality and approach of the graphic designers of De Designpolitie. The colourful presentation ranges over many implemented and non-implemented projects, ideas, failures, fascinations, photographs, reflections and articles. The ABC is more a workbook, a process book or an inspiration book than a portfolio. Numerous projects are presented, both seriously and with irony and self-mockery.
‘ABC says nothing; it is merely an organizing principle. And that interested us. With it we are saying “within this volume, within these pages, within this quantity of themes, we are going to explain who we are”. This delimitation is inherent to the restricted nature of the profession.’ - De Designpolitie, Richard van der Laken, Pepijn Zurburg
