The Influence of Paul Renner
Paul Renner was an eminent twentieth century German graphic designer, type designer and typographer. He was also a remarkable painter and teacher. He is best known for designing Futura typeface which became the milestone creation of twentieth century and influenced the modern typeface designs. I created a book celebrating his influence on the world of design today to which I designed it in a geometric style to reflect Futura. Futura was commercially released in 1927-1930 and it became a cornerstone of the “New Typography” classified as Geometrical Modernism, form follows function became the key words and careful reasoning constrained all the character shapes to their utmost functional simplicity, this book was designed with the New Typography principles in mind.
