The Crouwelclock, inspired by the graphics of Dutch graphic designer Wim Crouwel, is the first app to be launched by London's Design Museum.

An animated graphic alarm clock, it has three personal messages, recorded by Crouwel, which play out as alarms, wishing you 'a nice and well designed day', another reminding you to 'keep your grid straight today', and finally 'a grid today keeps the doctor away'.

The app was commissioned by the Design Museum to celebrate Wim Crouwel: A Graphic Odyssey, Crouwel's first UK retrospective exhibition at the Design Museum, which runs through 3 July. Available via iTunes, it also has its own Twitter feed, @crouwelclock.
