George Him: A Polish Designer for Mid-Century Britain

31 January 2020 - 10 May 2020

House of Illustration, King’s Cross, London

Spanning George Him’s long and versatile career as both an independent designer and as one half of the prolific Lewitt-Him partnership (1933-1954), the exhibition will include iconic wartime propaganda posters for the Ministries of Food and Information, corporate branding for El Al airlines and adverts for clients like Schweppes, Technicolor, the Post Office and The Times.

Him’s distinctive blend of hard modernist lines and empathetic humour marked his varied output, from reportage and book illustration to his era-defining branding and advertising. The exhibition will display previously unseen working sketches, original artwork and ephemera alongside Him’s most celebrated work, revealing one of the most important graphic artists of the 20th century.
