Hans-Rudolf Lutz was born in Zurich in 1939. After completing a four-year typesetting apprenticeship with the Orell Füssli printing company in Zurich, and continuing a career in the industry with the typographer Arthur Kümin and later the printer Anton Schob, he left Switzerland in 1961 to travel through Europe and North Africa. In 1963, he resumed his education in typography and design at the Schule für Gestaltung in Basel where his teachers included Emil Ruder and Robert Büchler. From 1964 to 1966, Lutz was the leader of the Expression Typographique group in Paris, at Studio Hollenstein, producing a range of graphic design, Hollenstein had developed the first photosetting machine, and the group responded by trying to produce an aesthetic that, in its modernity, matched the new technology. On his return to Zurich, Lutz set up his own studio and publishing company, Lutz Verlag. He has written, illustrated, typeset and produced nine books about visual communication. The latest, Typoundso and Ausbildung in typografischer Gestaltung, which were published this year, archive his own design work from the last thirty years. He has also published sixteen titles by other designers and writers. From 1983 until its recent disbandment, he was visual director of the avant-garde electronic music and multimedia performance group UnknownmiX. He continues to provide slide shows and visual contributions for live events. But Lutz is first and foremost an educator. Since 1966, he has taught at the Schule für Gestaltung in Zurich and in Lucerne, where he founded the typography department in 1968. He has also carried out assignments at colleges from the Hochshule für Künste in Bremen to Rhode Island School of Design. (Source) www.eyemagazine.com
