Horst Deppe : Passing of a legend

Tonight I discovered the passing of Horst Deppe. Horst was a teacher of typography and communication design at NSCAD many years ago. His effect on me was indelible.

I always was in awe of his presence. His ability to draw out perfection was unmatched. He had a gentle kind side that never showed ego, nor pretentiousness.

Horst embodied the spirit of NSCAD, technical expertise, critical and flexible thinking, and most importantly it’s whimsy.

There is comfort that his legacy will live on in those he taught and through his work.

Celebrate Horst, to me a legend. Thank you my friend. You are missed but never forgotten.
