A.M. CASSANDRE (Adolphe Jean-Marie Mouron)

(1901 – 1968)

With his posters for the “Normandie paquebot”, “Etoile du Nord, Nord Express” or his famous triptych “Dubo, Dubon, Dubonnet”, Adolphe Mouron Cassandre is certainly the most well known Art deco graphic designer in the world. The highly identifiable style of Cassandre is the result of a simplification of form and the accentuation of perspective that underlines the geometrical aspect of his subjects. He was one of the first artists to use lettering as a graphic element that is essential to the composition.
These posters have become icons of Art Deco. In 1926 he founded the agency “Alliance Graphique” and in 1930 joined the U.A.M (Union des Artistes Modernes) uniting the five great French graphic artists of this period: Cassandre, Jean Carlu, Paul Colin, Charles Loupot and Francis Bernard.
They presented posters that were light and modern, together with a typography that was easily read, and a composition that was free from all the heaviness of past design.
The “Cassandre style” would inspire numerous artists such as G.Favre or Henry Reb in France, Otto Morach and Herbert Matter in Switzerland, Ludwig Hohlwein and Julius Engelhard in Germany, McKnight Kauffer in England or Seneca and Nizzoli in Italy.
