Anton Stankowski studied graphic art, typography and photography under Max Burchartz at the Folkwangschule in Essen in 1927. Earlier he had completed an apprenticeship as decoration and church painter. In 1929 Stankowski moved to Zurich, where he worked for the renowned advertising studio of Max Dalang. With a new photo- and typographic approach he developed the so-called 'constructive graphic'. In 1951 Stankowski moved into his own studio in Stuttgart, Killesberg. Along with Willi Baumeister, Max Bense, Walter Cantz, Egon Eiermann, Mia Seeger and others a new circle of artists and designers came into existence in Stuttgart. Stankowski taught at the Ulm School of Design and was a member of the International Centers for the Typographic Arts (ICTA) in the 1960s. From 1969 to 1972 Stankowski was director of the board for visual design for the Olympic Games in Munich.
