Why the name Bill Hodler? 

Bill Hodler is more than just a play on YouHodler. There is a deep backstory to this mascot. Art enthusiasts may be familiar with Ferdinand Hodler. Hodler was one of the most well known Swiss painters of the nineteenth century and his personal work ethic (and of course, his name) serves as a direct inspiration to YouHodler’s philosophy.

Some of Hodlers most famous paintings are scenes in which working citizens are engaged in everyday activities such as the famous woodcutter depicted above. In 1908, The Swiss National Bank hired Hodler to design two pieces for the country’s new paper currency. His designs brought a lot of controversy since they did not depict pictures of famous ment but instead, a woodcutter and a reaper.  

Unlike many painters at the time, Hodler was not interested in simply following the trends. While he formed his foundation painting landscapes and portraits, Hodler quickly realized his ability to solve old problems with new solutions. This innovative mindset quickly manifested into his own, unique personal form which he called “parallelism.” Combining the influence of several styles, Parallelism focuses on the symmetry and rhythm that Hodler felt represented human society. In this spirit of innovation, creativity, and individuality, YouHodler pays homage to Ferdinand Hodler with not only our name but the way we conduct ourselves.
