1950’s Research

I did a little more digging into general 1950’s research, most of this is general findings of typography, popular typefaces and also typographers.

Adrian Frutiger – His contribution was the addition of the typeface “Univers”, which was widely used in the 1950’s.


Paul Rand – Graphic designer, with great success in corporate logos in the 1950’s, his work for IBM.


I Put together some of the most popular fonts of the 1950’s, below is a list of what I found out to be notorious then.
