Isotype shoe

Gerd Arntz

Period: 1928 – 1965

Arntz’s clear-cut style suited Neurath’s goals perfectly, and so he invited the young artists to come to Vienna in Gerd Arntz designed around 4000 signs, which symbolized key data from industry, demographics, politics and economy, for the visual language Isotype.

This informative and educational website is initiated by Ontwerpwerk design bureau and is realized in close cooperation with Peter Arntz, son of Gerd Arntz and Gemeentemuseum, Den Haag, administrator of the Gerd Arntz archive.
