    This ad is from 1947, the year Irving Harper’s logo for Herman Miller was introduced.

    “From his start working with Nelson in 1947 through his tenure as design director at the office until 1963, Harper brought a visual coherence and energy to everything he created—from furniture, to ads, to clocks—but it’s in the printed collateral that his approach to design as a total experience is most easily gleaned.” — Herman Miller
