Ludwig Hohlwein


Ludwig Hohlwein (1874 in Wiesbaden - 1949 in Berchtesgaden) was a German poster artist. He was trained and practiced as an architect until 1906 when he switched to poster design. Hohlwein's adaptations of photographic images was based on a deep and intuitive understanding of graphical principles. His creative use of color and architectural compositions dispels any suggestion that he uses photos as a substitute for creative design.
