Burton Kramer Identities Book

Burton Kramer Identities is an important and comprehensive book on the work of a leading Canadian designer, educator and painter, who practiced for over 50 years.

Within the Canadian design community, Burton Kramer became known as a staunch advocate of fully integrated design at a time when such an approach was virtually unknown in Canada. As a functioning part of this advocacy, Kramer was one of Canada’s first graphic designers to courageously promote the use of Helvetica type, organizational grids, symbols, systems design and other visual manifestations of the “International style” in a Canadian design environment that was then steeped in a different tradition and often hostile to this radically new approach.

In association with the launch of this book, the CDR will focus its posts this week on the career and achievements of Canada’s most incorrigible design optimist.
