Herbert Bayer was one of the most influential graphic designers of the twentieth century. He was both a student and a faculty member at the Bauhaus, the German art school that he helped make famous through the posters, invitations, postcards, books, and exhibitions he created. After leaving the Bauhaus, Bayer led a prolific career in Berlin and then the U.S.
