ABOUT







Alexey Brodovitch

Russian-born graphic designer, 1898-1971, who taught at various art institutes in New York, such as the School of Visual Arts. He was art director at Harper's Bazaar from 1934 until 1958, and is perhaps best known for his use of white space and unconventional photography and for his fashion mag typography. His typefaces include the slinky modern Brodovitch Albro (1950, or Al-Bro, for Alexey Brodovitch; published by Photo-Lettering Inc) and the stylish Vogue (1950s). Albro has a digital revival by Nico Schweizer called Albroni (1992, Lineto). Brandon Alvarado used Al-Bro as a model for Brodovitch (2011).
