The International System of Typographic Picture Education was founded back in 1936. The name was coined by Marie Neurath. It was previously known as the “Vienna Method”. But after the Austro-Fascist victory in the Austrian Civil War in 1934, the pioneers of this innovative way of using images were forced to pack their bags and move to the Netherlands.

Gerd Arntz, an activist in the Council Communist Movement, was the main designer working in conjunction with the Austro-Marxist, Otto Neurath.
