Hermann Eidenbenz (1902-1993) was one of the first persons in Switzerland to describe himself as a graphic designer. From the first half of the 20th century into the 1950s, he was involved in graphic design education in Zurich, Magdeburg, Basel and Brunswick, first as a student and later as a teacher. The didactic material from Eidenbenz's time as a teacher of graphic design published here throws light on this discipline at a time before graphic design in Switzerland had achieved international recognition. With contributions by Roland Früh, Sarah Klein (ed.), and François Rappo. The "Visual Archives" series is the result of research projects initiated and carried out at ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne. It is devoted to unresearched material left by designers, authors and brands. Documents and visual material from archives are put into context and accompanied by critical essays.
