Carl Ernst Hinkefuss (1881-1970) was a popular Bauhaus influenced illustrator known for modernist graphic design work that integrated art with commercial values. From 1905 to early 1910, he worked in the advertising and publicity departments of several firms in Berlin and Dessau, and then later in 1910 set out as an independent publicist in Berlin". He ultimately partnered with Wilhelm Deffke (1887-1950) in Wilhemwerk, their commercial design house.
