El Lissitzky

by Astrid Chastka | November 20, 2014

El Lissitzky is one of our favorite artists. He worked not only as a painter but also as an architect, graphic designer, and photographer, and was one of the founders of the Russian Suprematist art movement, where artists create based on “the supremacy of pure artistic feeling” rather than realistic representation. His bold, graphic, and geometric paintings known as PROUNS - and his talent across so many design platforms - inspired the mood and custom font creation for the Alphabet Edition.
