Otl Aicher was one of the most significant designers of post-war Germany. His influence on this period goes far beyond his work in the field of design. He has developed the corporate design for the Olympic Games and created corporate images for Braun, Lufthansa, FSB, Erco. His fundamental work on typography (typographie) deals with much more than just the teachings of design; it is a veritable typographical manifesto. Readers will view some of Otl Aicher's typographical theories with criticism. His fundamental work on typography deals with much more than just the teachings of design; it is a veritable typographical manifesto. It has nevertheless been unavailable for many years and threatened to disappear forever. We view some of Otl Aicher's typographical theories with criticism. However, we are of the opinion that the analysis of his typography should be a composite part of visual communication for both the purposes of study and everyday use
The world as design by Otl Aicher( Book )

22 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Otl Aicher (1922 1991) was an outstanding personality in modern design, he was a co-founder of the legendary Hochschule fur Gestaltung (HfG), the Ulm School of Design, Germany. His works since the fifties of the last century in the field of corporate design and his pictograms for the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich are major achievements in the visual communication of our times. Otl Aicher s writings are explorations of the world, a substantive part of his work. In moving through the history of thought and design, building and construction, he assures us of the possibilities of arranging existence in a humane fashion. As ever he is concerned with the question of the conditions needed to produce a civilized culture. These conditions have to be fought for against apparent factual or material constraints and spiritual and intellectual substitutes on offer. Otl Aicher likes a dispute. For this reason, the volume contains polemical statements on cultural and political subjects as well as practical reports and historical exposition. He fights with productive obstinacy, above all for the renewal of Modernism, which he claims has largely exhausted itself in aesthetic visions; he insists the ordinary working day is still more important than the cultural Sunday .
