Alexey Brodovitch

A master of layout design, and a long time before the invention of computers. Alexey Brodovitch's work is nothing but amazing, his sense of space and knowledge of how photographs and text work together on the page shows through in his work. Text often compliments the shapes that feature in the photographs, along with colours and tints that feature as well. These all work in harmony together creating a layout that is both engaging and aesthetically pleasing to look at, not to busy and just the right amount of negative space that frame the image and text. Layering images is a common theme through out his work placing photographs on top of photographs to achieve his desired composition.
