DESIGN, compiled by Ruth Artmonsky and Brian Webb, features the work of F H K Henrion. Born in Germany, he settled in England in the 1930s. He designed exhibitions and posters for the Ministry of Information and the Festival of Britain and went on to become an international leader in corporate identity design.
More about the artist:
F H K Henrion was one of a distinguished group of graphic designers - refugees from Europe prior to World War II - who bought cutting-edge continental design to the rather parochial English scene. He quickly made his mark as a poster designer for the Ministry of Information, and, parallel to this, began to build up a career in exhibition design, culminating in two highly original pavilions for the Festival of Britain.
