Rivers of the World

The publication of this hefty book marked the celebration of 75 years of the ‘Centraal Bureau voor de Rijn- en Binnenvaart’. CBRB is a Rotterdam-based organisation for inland shipping. This book takes a wider look at the major rivers of the world. While interning at Proforma, we designed the concept — everything happens between port (red) and starboard (green) — and initial sketches, only to find out later that the concept and most of the general design direction were retained and executed very nicely. The first copy of the book was handed to then crown prince Willem-Alexander, now king of the Netherlands.

Designed at Proforma, Rotterdam.
