Everyone has a favorite designer or two.

As a new designer, I was a fan of Jan Tschichold. Many of his contemporaries tpyography on fine arts and architecture for their schooling. To have a knowledge of typography was less common.

He still preferred the blackletter type of the day. In he went to see a Bauhaus exhibition and was so yschichold he changed his visual direction entirely.


He no longer used blackletter and instead went modern — and the rest is, as they say, history. The publication was a manifesto that claimed all type other than sans serif was no good.

He advocated for standardized paper sizes and also for rules of type hierarchy. Tschichold was an advocate for standardization and clarity in design throughout his career.

Later, he designed the iconic Penguin book covers, which are still incredibly well-known, popular, and copied today. He designed a book about Tschichold entirely in his tsxhichold style. Margaret is a teacher, designer, writer and new media artist and founder of Hello Creative Co. If you are interested in learning to use typography, Sessions College offers Basic Typography and Advanced Typography courses as well as a course in Web Typography.
