AMSTERDAM — English-language cultural paper Amsterdam Weekly has been named by London's Design Museum as one of the "most inspiring and innovative design projects in Europe over the past two years".
The paper will appear in a contemporary design exhibition called 'The European Design Show' which will run from 28 May to 4 September 2005 in the British capital. For details, see designmuseum.org.
The latest edition of the Amsterdam Weekly
"Amsterdam Weekly is the perfect example of how a freely available newspaper can maintain incredibly high design standards — every city should have one!" the curator of the Design Museum, Sophie McKinlay, said.
The exhibition will showcase the "most exciting developments in contemporary design, from fashion and furniture, to ingenious websites, innovative product design and ice cream packaging and even a newly invented shade of black".
Earlier this year, the Amsterdam Weekly featured in 'Under a Tenner: What is Good Design?', another exhibition held by the Design Museum.
Amsterdam Weekly was launched by expat journalists Todd Savage and Richard Jurgens in March 2004.
The paper seeks to combine well-written features about Amsterdam life with a critical guide to arts and entertainment.
It has a circulation of 21,000 and is available at 500 locations in the Dutch capital. The paper's design was created by art director Danny Calvi.
