About

Bos studied at the Amsterdam Graphic College and Rietveld Academy with Wim Crouwel (1955–62). He worked for Ahrend, first as a copywriter, later as their art director. Bos was a designer/consultant for Ahrend for 50 years, when he was part of Total Design and 2D3d and finally as a freelancer. His last job was creating their in-house museum. He was the first employee of Total Design in 1963, and became a creative director; he left TD after 28 years. He specialized in corporate identity. His major clients include Randstad Employment Agency (1966–97), Furness Logistics Group (1968–94) and Belgian General Bank.

At his retrospective exhibition (Breda, 2000), there was a special show of more than 100 logotypes. He won several international prizes (Ljubljana, Stuttgart, Brno, and a World Logotype Award 1998). He is an honorary member of Dutch Designers Association BNO and Brno Biennale. Bos lectured and taught all over Europe, the US, Israel and Japan.

Eye #59 said: ‘He is a Renaissance man: designer, journalist, copywriter, photographer, studio manager, initiator and chairman of the Nederlands Archief Grafisch Ontwerpers.’ He also now paints and is the author of several books. His monograph Design of a Lifetime (2000) is available in Dutch and English editions.
