Experimental Jetset is an Amsterdam-based graphic design studio founded in 1997 by Marieke Stolk, Erwin Brinkers, and Danny van den Dungen. Focusing on printed matter and site-specific installations, Experimental Jetset designers have worked on projects for a wide variety of institutions including Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Centre Pompidou, Dutch Post Group, and Whitney Museum of American Art, many of which have acquired their work for their collections.

Experimental Jetset’s work has been featured in exhibitions such as Ecstatic Alphabets / Heaps of Language, Museum of Modern Art, New York( 2012) and Graphic Design: Now in Production, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (2011) as well as in numerous solo shows.

In 2015 Roma Publications (Amsterdam) released a monograph titled Statement and Counter-Statement: Notes on Experimental Jetset, featuring essays by Linda van Deursen, Mark Owens, Ian Svenonius, and Jon Sueda.

The studio’s designers currently teach at the Werkplaats Typografie, ArtEZ, in Arnhem, in the Netherlands.
