Max Bill. Information: Wirtschaft, Wissenschaft, Erziehung, Technik, Kunst, 1932-1933

Max Bill was a student at the Bauhaus when the school was dominated by left-wing politics. In 1932, back in Zürich, he designed the small monthly journal Information. The topics listed on the cover were 'business, science, education, technology and art'. Information viewed. them from a socialist position. The geometrically based lettering in the red flag-like mastehead is typical of Bill's graphics of the 1930s. The cover type is Grotesk, the text is Bodoni.”
