Paul Schuitema (1897-1973) was a Dutch graphic artist. He also designed furniture and expositions and worked as photographer, film director, painter and teacher for publicity design at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.
After the first World War, Schuitema left painting and embraced early modernism: his interest in mass production and technology lead him to apply the principals of de Stijl, Constructivism and Bauhaus to advertising and print media.
He was a member of Kurt Schwitter’s Ring neue Werbegestalter (Circle of New Advertising Designers), which included contemporaries Piet ZwartLászló Moholy-NagyHerbert Bayer and Jan Tschichold.
