September 14 Bruno Monguzzi, born in Switzerland in 1941, is a designer, typographer and teacher. After study in Geneva and London, he began is career at Studio Boggeri in Milan in 1961. In 1965, he designed nine pavilions for Expo 67 in Montreal and in 1983 he won the competition for the signage system and corporate identity for the Musée d'Orsay in Paris.

"He makes pictures out of type" is a somewhat simplistic label that is attached to him, and although true, it by no means exhausts his profound talents. "If you keep shouting, you are not making communication any better. You are only removing talking and whispering from the system" he says on the first page of the small book, published in 1998.
