Max Bill

Influential Swiss graphic designer, sculptor, painter and architect, b. 1908, Winterthur, d. 1994. He studied at the Bauhaus from 1927 until 1929 under Josef Albers, Paul Klee and Oskar Schlemmer, and moved to Zurich after that. In 1944, Bill became a professor at the school of arts in Zurich. In 1953, along with Inge Scholl and Otl Aicher, he founded the influential Ulm School of Design, which closed in 1968. Bill was a professor at the Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg and chair of Environmental Design from 1967 to 1974. He lived in Zurich in the later years of his life and died at the Berlin Tegel airport of a heart attack.

Max Bill created the typeface Bill (1949-1950) which is characterized by straight-edged glyphs (the o excepted).

Digital typefaces based on his work include the geometric Max Bill (2014, Jack Harley Szukalski), Architype Bill (The Foundry), Bill Corporate Narrow (2015, Oliver Jeschke), Bill Corporate (2015, OGJ Type Design), Bill Display (2015, Oliver Jeschke: Greek simulation style) and Sequel Sans (Oliver Jeschke).
