A simple design done well can go a long way. The classic Albertus font, made by in-house designer, Berthold Wolpe, makes Faber books instantly recognisable and has been in use since 1932, and continues to be used today. What other branding icons of the twentieth century can you think of?
To see more of Nicholson's work visit the Mondrian Nicholson in Parallel exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery, London until the 20th May.
