Max Bill is a Swiss born multi-disciplinary practioner.
An Architect, artist, painter, typeface designer, industrial designer and graphic artist.
He studied at the Bauhaus school 1927 until 1929.
“The motivations behind the creation of the Bauhaus lay in the 19th century, in anxieties about the soullessness of manufacturing and its products, and in fears about art’s loss of purpose in society. Creativity and manufacturing were drifting apart, and the Bauhaus aimed to unite them once again, rejuvenating design for everyday life”.
He was crossed through several separate industries but you can see the connections clearly.
Clarity of design and precise proportions are his calling cards.
“ The wholeness of symmetry” won him acclaim and he is represented in museums, internationally he managed to hold over 200 one-man exhibitions of his work.

I like the way the O looks like it has caught a breeze under its bottom right hand corner and is about to fly off the page.
