RUSSIAN REVOLUTION: Constructivism in Graphic Design

World War I and Russia’s civil war caused years of chaos for its people, and their Constructivist designs illustrated their desire to restore order and create new ideas.

Vladamir Tatlin and Alexander Rodchenko founded Constructivism; Tatlin was its spokesperson while Rodchenko was the artist. Constructivism was less about painting and sculpting and more about architecture, photojournalism, and industrialization.

This style included bold colors and geometric designs. Constructivist artists wanted to create a single style for all classes of people, no matter what their status of wealth was. This idea was reflected in art, architecture, furniture, appliances, and clothing.
