The Dutch design icon who gave us the ultra-geometric Gridnik typeface, has passed away at the age of 90 in his hometown of Amsterdam. Describing him as the "king of grid", online platform Typeroom said in a tribute that he was "one of the most prominent and important figures in the visual arts of our times" and "a lover of clarity, functionality and machine-like simplicity".
