Sometimes I wonder why certain designers are lost to history. Maybe they didn’t hang out with the right people, who knows. Good thing we have sites like the MoMA Collection. If not, we’d probably never get see the great work done by Canadian designer Rolf Harder. He was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1929 and studied at the Hamburg Academy of Fine Arts. In 1959 he moved to Montreal and opened his own firm, Rolf Harder Design. You can read his full bio here.
His work is masterful. A prime example of the International Typographic Style. Harder’s work also highlights his superb understanding of color. I’m a big fan, especially of this piece he did in 1968.
