Graphic Artist

Profession: Graphic Artist


Life: 1903-1969

Notable as a leading proponent of modernist graphic design


in the United States, his clear and concise use of typography


was highly praised both in the United States and abroad.

“(the designer) must work with one goal in mind—to


integrate the elements in such a manner that they will combine


to produce a result that will convey not merely a static


commercial message, but an emotional reaction as well.”
