(Introduction) 'Studio Dumbar has been unsurpassed in shaping the look of the Netherlands these past few decades. There is no Dutch town that does not convey a Studio Dumbar design: if there happens to be no passing police card nor a post office to be seen, there will be a poster somewhere or a public telephone close by. In the Netherlands, top-quality graphic design is for everyone. In this small, anti-authoritarian country is a long tradition of good design, thanks to the efforts of the national and local government authorities and the commissions of important organisations such as the Post Office and Central Bank. If you examine this tradition you will soon notice how deeply it is rooted in the consciousness of the Dutch. The graphic design that goes on here - and this is particularly true for Studio Dumbar design - is the direct result of this deeply rooted tradition.'
