Biographical Sketch

Herbert Pinzke (1917-1922) was an influential figure in the Chicago design industry, holding offices with the International Design Conference, the Art Directors Club of Chicago, the Society of Typographic Art, and the Chicago Book Clinic. He worked for the Container Corporation and Gollier, designing an 18 volume children's encyclopedia. He chaired the International Design Conference's 1961 event, held annually in Aspen, Colorado, and lectured all around the world on design principles.

Herbert Pinzke was born on January 3, 1917. He started his career as an apprentice sign painter in 1933. From 1935 to 1941 he attended night classes at the Art Institute of Chicago, and from 1946-1948 studied at the Institute of Design, becoming class president. He continued in academia, teaching at the Institute of Design for fifteen years, the University of Chicago for twelve, and headed the design department at Columbia College for 5 years.
