The logo of Amro Bank of the Netherlands was designed by my father, Theodorus Lambertus ('Theo') Kurpershoek, *1914 in Rotterdam, +1998 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. He worked all his life in or near Amsterdam as a painter, etcher, calligrapher, typographist and graphic designer. Amro Bank was the result of a merger in 1964, which was the year the logo was introduced.
Hey all, I love this site. Wish all the logos had explanations. Its so insightful. I'm new to the whole logo design thing. I'm going at it myself. I admire what graphic designers do (logo design, specifically). Simplify a whole company and its motives to one recognizable shape or form. I need more logo history to help me grow... Just dropping a line.
