Herbert Bayer

Gravure
8¹⁄₄ x 8¹⁄₄"


Though Bayer came to the Bauhaus as a student, he stayed on to become one of its most prominent faculty members. His design for a new sans-serif type called Universal helped to define the Bauhaus aesthetic.

He left in 1928 and moved to Berlin where he opened a graphic design firm whose clients included the trend-setting magazine Vogue. During this period, he also created or art-directed a number of memorable exhibitions. —RIT
