Founded in 1924 in Berlin by professor H.K. Frensel, Gebrauchsgraphik (Commercial Graphics) was one of the first European journals devoted to graphic design, advertising and related subjects such as illustration and typography. This monthly magazine was published bilingually in German and English, and showcased a variety of high quality, innovative ads, posters and other graphics to an international audience.
