Jochen Stankowski – Signs – Applied Aesthetics, Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther Konig, 2005

Information

‘Trained typographer Jochen Stankowski, born 1940, has been highly influential in many media – printing, photography, graphic design and painting. His forte is developing symbols, visual brands that are unmistakable in the public and media arenas. This book is an overview of more than 40 years of Stankowski’s work. Consisting of 3 chapters, it introduces the reader to the historical development of signs, beginning with the arrow and honing in on Stankowski’s individual aesthetics and applications. It presents sketches, drawings and graphic designs – ranging from the advertisement to leaflet, from the poster to the newspaper, to the book and internet -showing the blueprints that usually remain hidden behind the symbols.’

Among the young graphic artists of Berlin, who set to work after the war, Hans Adolf Albitz and Ruth Albitz-Geiß can claim special attention. In a short time, at a period when economic conditions were pretty unfavourable, they worked themselves so to the fore that their names came to mean something in Berlin publicity, and in western Germany their posters are known and appreciated, too.

The typographic designs produced for the National Theatre by Ken Briggs are not only iconic and depict the Swiss typographic style of the time, but remain a key example of the creation of a cohesive brand style.

The advertising has a certain contrast of hand-drawn and mechanical. Produced entirely in black, it reminds us that the absence of colour can be highly effective. Hans Michel and Günther Kieser's illustrations bring a sense of both playfulness and a stylistic approach to a corporate client.
