On December 18th, the famous swiss internationalism graphic designer Armin Hofmann passed away at the age of 100. Armin Hofmann had significantly influenced the graphic design and graphic design education. He was also known as the Swiss design legend. He taught at Allgemeine Gewerbeschule Basel School of Art and Crafts at the age of 26 and followed Emil Ruder as head of the Basel School of Design’s graphic design department. His style is focusing on the basic visual elements such as point, lines, and shapes while delivering complexity, simplicity, and abstraction visuality.
He was also known for the ability to integrate photography into graphic design. He describes his way of using color and font as the “trivialization of colour”. Let’s take a look at the work of this past graphic design legend.
