His many years of teaching between 1918 and 1956 resulted in very different designers. They include the protagonists of new graphic design such as Richard Paul Lohse, Josef Müller-Brockmann and Carlo Vivarelli or various talents of artistic illustration such as Heiri Steiner, Lora Lamm or K. Domenic Geissbühler, and innovative designers such as Hermann Eidenbenz or Gérard Miedinger. As well as scientific illustrators such as H.P. Weber or caricaturist H.U. Steger. An additional group consists of designers who teach internationally such as Pierre Gauchat, Walter Käch, Robert Sessler, Fred Troller and Josef Müller-Brockmann. This diversity of talent is an impressive documentation of the openness, sustainability and rejection of dogma evident in Ernst Keller’s teaching.
