Herbert Bayer was a prolific graphic designer and typography designer who also worked as a sculptor and a painter and who produced architectural projects mostly inspired by his research in graphic design. In 1925, he became a teacher at the Bauhaus after having been a student under Kandinsky. In 1946 he moved to Aspen in Colorado where he designed architecture, land art projects (see our post on the Green Mound and the Marble Garden ) and kept on producing graphic design.
His projects for kiosks and small booths, dated at the early 1920’s, combine bold volumetric compositions, close to neoplasticism, with the use of primary colors and typefaces merging architectural themes with advertising techniques. Flat colored surfaces are mixed with black and white photos added as a collage in drawings that are always presented as axonometric projections.
