Herbert MATTER

(1907 – 1984)

Herbert Matter worked with a number of famous designers and artists during his career including Fernand Léger, Le Corbusier, Charles and Ray Eames, Derberny & Peignot, A.M. Cassandre and Alexey Brodovitch. Matter was a master of using photomontage, color and typography in an expressive manner, transcending the boundaries between art and design. His design work often favoured a heavy use of photography. His most recognizable works are the posters he created for the Swiss Tourist Office, but his photography work for Harper's Bazaar, under the direction of Brodovitch, is equally impressive. A master in his profession, he began teaching photography and design at Yale in 1952. He continued to teach and work, notable work from his later career includes the identity design for the New Haven Railroad, until he died in 1984.
