We have lost another brilliant graphic designer, who was one of the pioneers of the International Typographic Style. Swiss graphic designer Ruedi Rüegg passed away on October 14th, 2011. Here’s a little note written by his good friend, Fritz Gottschalk.
He was a partner at the legendary agency, Müller-Brockmann & Co., and he published one of my favorite ABC Verlag books, Basic Typography.
His work still has a huge influence on me, and I will always cherish it.
He will be missed. RIP.
