Full Description
F.H.K Henrion was one of a distinguished group of graphic designers— refugees from Europe just prior to World War II— who brought cutting-edge continental design to the rather parochial English scene. He quickly made his mark as a poster designer for the Ministry of Information, while building up a career in exhibition design that culminated in two highly original pavilions for the Festival of Britain. Henrion is perhaps best remembered for his pioneeering work in corporate identity design, whereby he raised the status of the graphic designer to boardroom significance. He established the authority of the profession as total re-branders of organizations, from logo, through retail outlets and vehicles, to stationery and labels.
