Werner ‘Jacky’ Jackson

Werner ‘Jacky’ Jackson (né Werner Isaacsohn, 1904–1984) was a lauded student at the Bauhaus from 1924 to 1928, before the devastating fracture of his emerging professional life. 

A promising career in advertising and graphic design in Berlin, that most culturally progressive city before the rise of National Socialism, was suddenly and emphatically denied. And whereas many creative disciplines might form a student’s arsenal of skills prior to selecting one profession, Jacky employed numerous talents as he sought to establish himself in Britain, while occupying the uncertain position of a refugee.
