At the Bauhaus, Dessau, Germany
After three years of graphics courses in high school where he learned to operate printing presses, stat cameras, and set type by hand and Linotype, Rauhaus proprietor Kevin Rau began his career in the graphics industry in 1979 as a press operator. He went on to study graphic design at the University of Wisconsin Madison where he earned his Bachelor and Master of Fine Arts degrees. Kevin has designed materials for Sony, Shelcore Toys, Seton Hall University, the Make-a-Wish Foundation, Culver’s Restaurants, Lars Müller Publishers, and many others. His work has been featured in top industry publications from around the world, been recognized by Chicago's Society of Typographic Arts and Institute of Design, and is included in the permanent collection of the Vignelli Center for Design Studies (Rochester Institute of Technology, New York), the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum (Two Rivers, Wisconsin), and the Oshkosh Public Museum (Oshkosh, Wisconsin).
In 2010, Kevin purchased an antique Chandler & Price press and reconnected with his roots as a printer. While most of the work done at his studio is job printing with polymer plates, a growing collection of wood and metal type ensures an increasing emphasis of the more traditional and fine art aspects of contemporary letterpress.
Kevin also continues to work as a graphic designer, specializing in publications and identity design.
