Hans Schleger was one of the most important graphic designers
of the 20C. He came to Britain having worked in Berlin and New York.
He was part of an important movement of people and ideas that were
part of the development of modernism as an international phenomenon.
He conceived of an integrated approach to design that embraced every
aspect of what we now call "corporate identity". Schleger had seen
the effectiveness of this logic in both Germany and America and also in
the pioneering work of Frank Pick at London Transport.
Schleger was a fine poster artist but also a great photographer
Thanks to Pat Schleger
