  • Dotato di uno stile caratterizzato da un'estrema semplicità grafica e comunicativa, è stato uno dei più importanti graphic designer tedeschi della prima metà del Novecento. La sua prima opera di rilievo è un manifesto per i fiammiferi Priester, che viene premiato nel 1905 alla Camera di Commercio berlinese. Tale evento segna l'inizio di una fortunata carriera di pubblicitario. Tra i suoi lavori più celebri è possibile citare, oltre a quelli propagandistici della Prima guerra mondiale, il poster per le scarpe Stiller del 1912. Nel 1920 diventa insegnante presso la Königlichen Akademie di Berlino. E sempre nei primi anni venti è co-fondatore della rivista di grafica Das Plakat (poi Gebrauchsgraphik). Nel 1923 tiene una serie di conferenze negli Stati Uniti, luogo questo dove emigrerà e dove passerà il resto della propria vita. Importante è stata anche la sua opera di progettazione di caratteri tipografici. Nell'arco della propria carriera arrivò a realizzarne 36. Tra i più importanti è possibile citare il Lucian (1928), il Fashion (1929) e il Tango (1933).
  • Lucian Bernhard (March 15, 1883 – May 29, 1972) was a German graphic designer, type designer, professor, interior designer, and artist during the first half of the twentieth century. He was born in Stuttgart, Germany, on March 15, 1883, as Emil Kahn to a Jewish family, but changed in 1905 to his more commonly known pseudonym. His first name is often spelled Lucien. He was influential in helping create the design style known as Plakatstil (Poster Style), which used reductive imagery and flat-color as well as Sachplakat ('object poster') which restricted the image to simply the object being advertised and the brand name. He was also known for his designs for Stiller shoes, Manoli cigarettes, and Priester matches. Though he studied briefly at the Akademie in Munich, he was largely self-taught. He moved to Berlin in 1901 where he worked as a poster designer and art director for magazines. In 1920 he became a professor at the Akademie der Künste until 1923, when he emigrated to New York City. In 1928 he opened the Contempora Studio with Rockwell Kent, Paul Poiret, Bruno Paul, and Erich Mendelsohn where he worked as a graphic artist and interior designer. After 1930 he worked primarily as a painter and sculptor until his death on May 29, 1972. Lucian Bernhard was the father of the photographer Ruth Bernhard.
