    2. 2. Walter Gropius German architect born in Berlin Founder of the Bauhaus School May 18, 1883 – July 5, 1969 “ Architects, painters, sculptors , we must all return to crafts! For there is no such thing as “ professional art” .
    3. 3. There is no essential difference between the artist and the craftsman . The artist is an exalted craftsman . By the grace of Heaven and in rare moments of inspiration which transcend the will, art may unconsciously blossom from the labour of his hand, but a base in handicrafts is essential to every artist. It is there that the original source of creativity lies”. - Walter Gropius
    4. 4. ‘ an eagerness to experiment, openess, creativity and a close link to industrial practice ’

    15. 18. <ul><li>“ the design of any effective card or flyer or poster starts with a couple of basic questions: Who am I trying to reach, and what's the best way to reach them? The answer to the first question being &quot;Germans”. In this case, Obama's savvy design team answered the second question by paying subtle but conscious tribute to the Bauhaus movement of the 1920s … By employing Bauhaus-inspired graphic cues, the Obama campaign was tapping in to the German cultural psyche -- speaking to Germans in a design language that is familiar to them. That was smart. After all, it's the Germans the campaign was trying to draw to the Tiergarten today”. </li></ul><ul><li>[John lumea] </li></ul><ul><li>the huffington post </li></ul><ul><li>july 24, 2008 </li></ul>
