Futura – Originally designed in the 1920s and '30s, these unique faces were characterized by bold outline, streamlined forms, and a sense of stylized geometry. They feature a forceful, yet elegant look. Although most commonly known for its influence on architecture, advertising, interior design and fashion, Art Deco cast its spell of sleek modernity over typography with equal abandon.

Herbert Bayer (1900-1985). Dirige l'imprimerie du Bauhaus de Dessau, celle-ci est liée à la réclame. La logique du texte à imprimer impose la mise en pages.

Bayer a une expérience pro du graphisme publicitaire, de l'efficacité visuelle, il préconise une typographie élémentaire à la manière des constructivistes.
Bayer, Herbert -- The school existed in three German cities (Weimar from 1919 to 1925, Dessau from 1925 to 1932 and Berlin from 1932 to 1933), under three different architect-directors: Walter Gropius from 1919 to 1928, Hannes Meyer from 1928 to 1930 and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe from 1930 until 1933, when the school was closed by its own leadership under pressure from the Nazi regime.
