History: Switzerland becomes neutral in 1515

Today in History: Burkhard Mangold born in 1873

On this day in 1873, the Swiss artist was born in Basel, Switzerland. Mangold worked as a designer, glass painter, and poster artist. He initially studied and worked as a painter in Basel (1890-1893) before traveling to Paris (1894) and moving to Munich (1894-1900) where his work became influenced by the contemporary German art nouveau poster style.

Today is National Teddy Bear Day

Today is National Teddy Bear Day

National Teddy Bear Day is observed annually on September 9th.  We have all had a special cuddly teddy as a child.  Some of us still have our teddy bear from our childhood.  Whether or not you still have your childhood teddy, today is the perfect day to celebrate your childhood friend! The name Teddy Bear originated in 1902 after American President Theodore Roosevelt refused to shoot a bear cub while hunting in Mississippi.  This incident made national news and became a classic through Clifford Berryman’s cartoon of the event published in the Washington Post on November 16th, 1902. The cartoon inspired New York store owner Morris Michtom to create a new toy. Michtom wrote President Roosevelt to ask permission to name the new toy a “Teddy Bear.”

Today in History: Josef Müller-Brockmann passed away in 1996

Josef Müller-Brockmann studied architecture, design, and history of art at the Kunstgewerbeschule and the University in Zurich. At the age of 22, he opened his own studio with a focus on graphic design, exhibition design, and photography. His objective design practices led to the breakthrough of the “Swiss Style” during the 1950s. In 1958, Müller-Brockmann became the founder and co-editor (until 1965) of the journal Neue Grafik (New Graphic Design), spreading the principles of Swiss Design internationally. Müller-Brockmann never allowed his designs to be influenced by trends or styles but followed his own aesthetics and ethics. His posters provided numerous institutions and companies with a convincing graphic appearance and became a model in their quality. Müller-Brockmann passed away on August 30, 1996 in Zurich.
