After returning to Hungary in 1925 he founded and directed a private school of for advertising design in Budapest in 1928 with curriculum inspired by the Bauhaus principles. The tutors included Iván Hevesy (art history, film), Kálmán Kovács (stage design), Farkas Molnár (architecture), Pál Ligeti ('construction', cultural history), and himself (painting, graphic design, advertising design). The school was attended, among others, by Victor Vasarely; it closed down in 1938.
