Josef Müller-Brockmann

Whilst doing some typographic research for our new 'Creative Meaning' brief, I came back across the work of designer Josef Müller-Brockmann. I found these images whilst researching for a previous project at the beginning of the year and have found myself going back to them for inspiration.
He was a Swiss graphic designer who opened a studio in Zurich during the 1930s and produced some interesting publications, especially his work, 'Grid Systems in Graphic Design', which shows great examples of functional typography and organized visual communication. He was also one of the founders for a short-lived magazine titled 'New Graphic Design'. His clean use of design, typographic treatment and overall organized aesthetic has definitely inspired me for our new project!
