Today in History: Abram Games born in 1914

Today in History: Abram Games born in 1914
103 years ago today, the British designer and poster artist, Abram Games, was born. Games became a freelancing graphic artist at age 22. During World War II, he designed around 100 propaganda posters as an official poster artist to the British War Office. Some of his images were controversial: his ATS (Auxiliary Territorial Service) poster was labeled the “blonde bombshell” by the press, depicting a beautiful ATS girl with deep red lipstick. The poster was banned by the military. After the war, Games was a sought after commercial artist and worked for such companies as British Airways, The Financial Times, Guinness, London Transport and Shell.

Today in History: László Moholy-Nagy born in 1895

Today in History: László Moholy-Nagy born in 1895

122 years ago today, the Hungarian painter, photographer, and influential educator, László Moholy-Nagy, was born. In 1923, Walter Gropius invited Moholy-Nagy to teach at the Bauhaus in Weimar where he was soon placed in charge of the school’s preliminary course. In 1937, he moved to Chicago and was appointed Director of the New Bauhaus, Chicago, but the school went bankrupt after only one year. Against all odds, Moholy-Nagy re-opened the school as the School of Design in 1939 (renamed the Institute of Design in 1944). In late 1945, Moholy-Nagy became very ill and was diagnosed with leukemia. He died the following year. Today, Chicago’s Institute of Design continues to be the source of the most influential design curriculum in the United States.

Today is Typewriter Day

Today is Typewriter Day

149 years ago today, on June 23, 1868, the patent for the typewriter was granted to American inventor Christopher Latham Sholes. While many people had been working on different prototypes of typewriters before 1868, Christopher Latham Sholes’ machine was the first one to be commercially marketed. Known as the Sholes and Glidden typewriter or the Remington 1 typewriter, the device could only type uppercase letters. Typewriters revolutionized the world of communications. Letters and correspondences looked more professional, followed a consistent format, and were more legible when typed out on a typewriter compared to handwritten communications that dominated the workplace in the past. In addition to creating an efficient and more organized workspace, the use of typewriters in businesses and governments worldwide meant that typing became a required skill for many jobs. A large percentage of these jobs were administrative in nature and were usually done by women, who were specifically hired for their typing skills – the typewriter played a very important role in opening up workspaces for women.
