Logos, signage, corporate identity: The components that are now part and parcel of every company’s image were still in their infancy in the mid-20th century. The graphic design studio of Stankowski + Duschek was pioneering in this development a leading firm in the field of communication design for decades. Famous trademarks and well-known company images emerged from the partnership, including those of Deutsche Bank, Viessmann and Messe Frankfurt. The constructive aesthetic of the signage systems reveals the influence of Concrete Art that both Anton Stankowski (1906–1998) and Karl Duschek (1947–2011) found inspiration in during a similar period.
