As a calligrapher, Jan Tschichold was naturally interested in lettering and words. As time went by, he found himself more and more involved in the emerging art of typography. The radical, anti-organization styles like Dada and Futurism were simple enough, but the lack of clarity made them difficult to digest, however total, complete order and symmetry had proved over the last several decades to be an ineffective, boring way of delivering an idea or product. Jan was opposed to the total rule-breaking of these styles, and wanted to create a standardized style for lettering, which he did in writing Die Neue Typography. The style established was that of offset photos with sans serif text integrated into the image to make a statement, while the print settled in around the photos in blocks. While a proponent for modern styles, Tschichold was confident that old Roman type settings could co-exist as print in the modern era, even if serif-free text looked best in graphics and photos, setting a baseline for acceptance of the old with the new, instead of outright rejecting it. Jan was accused of turning the typesetting art into a dogmatic science free of political expression, which may or may not have been true, but effectively made it so that art did not have to be ‘for’ or ‘against’ something, but could simply make a statement. Though Tschichold changed his views on his own work as his life went on, he changed the art of page design and typography forever.
