In his youth, Sandberg was influenced both by the Bauhaus and Otto Neurath's Isoptype system. He began working for the Stedelijk Museum in 1928, and became part of the Dutch resistance during the Second World War. His pre-war posters are more structured and in keeping with European design tenets, such as from the Bauhaus, with sensible, straightforward typography that is less creative than it became after the war. Stedelijk SA 00207.
