Constructive graphic design

Lohse started off as a graphic designer when the development of photomontage and typomontage by the Constructivist avantgarde was cut short in many parts of Europe by political events. Out of the pictorial discoveries of Constructivism, he developed a form of Constructive design that helped to give form to the concept of Swiss graphics, which was to have a global impact on design in the 1950s. Lohse did not confuse graphic design with the self-satisfied expression of the artist's subjectivity through the graphic medium. Rather he found means of giving objective form to differentiated content. (Jörg Stürzebecher, 1999)
