With Matter's distinctive and expressive slab-serif logotype printed in black, blue, yellow and red; the same as printed on the exhibition catalog's front cover. Paul Rand wrote the admired introductory “poem” published in the exhibition catalog (not included): “Herbert Matter doesn't say much, But his silence is eloquent, As a teacher, as a film maker, as a photographer, as a designer.”
