Ruedi Rüegg 1936 – 2011

Ruedi Ruegg

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.
