ABOUT







Armin Hofmann

Legendary Swiss type teacher, b. 1920. Hofmann succeeded Emil Ruder as head of the graphic design department at the Schule für Gestaltung Basel (Basel School of Design) and was instrumental in developing the Swiss style of graphic design. His teaching methods were unorthodox and broad-based. He designed, and influenced the design of, books, exhibitions, stage sets, logotypes, symbols, typographical pieces, posters and sign systems. His work is recognized for its reliance on the fundamental elements of graphic form---the point, line, and shape. He retired in 1987. His output includes many fantastic typographic posters. Example.

Author of Graphic Design Manual (1965).
