Otto Treumann

Otto Treumann (1919-2001) is regarded as a major pioneer in the modernisation of graphic design in the Netherlands. His style developed through his interest and connection with the Swiss school of typography and Bauhaus, combining clear typography and usage of colour. He established a great working relationship with many industrial clients, invariably achieving innovative work in the arena where economics meets culture. Some of his most renowned work included the identity work for El Al Airlines, the 'Jaarbeurs' in Utrecht postage stamps and the Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam. A monograph of his work can be bought from all good retailers.
