The Bauhaus art movement began in Germany in 1919 when the Bauhaus School was created from two separate schools by Walter Gropius. Although the school had a short life, closing in 1933, it was hugely influential and among its teachers were several world famous Bauhaus artists. The Bauhaus style and the bauhaus typography are still used in modern day designs and posters. You will find their style on album covers, posters for movies, events, signage and many more apllications.
The Bauhaus set some elementary principles of typographic communication:
1]Typography is shaped by functional requirements.
2]The aim of typographic layout is communication (for which is the graphic medium). Communication must appear in the shortest, simplest and most penetrating form.
3]For typography to serve social ends, its ingredients need internal organization - (ordered content) as well as external organization (the typographic material properly related).
Inspired by the movement, the principles of the "New Typography", the strict geometric structure, the rounded sans serif letters, the colours that were used in the original posters in the early years of the school and the simplicity of the form, i decided to design some posters as a tribute to the Bauhaus.
