    Schleger moved to New York where he worked as a magazine paste-up artist and freelance advertising designer. He adopted the signature Zero, a wry comment on his status as a designer. In 1929 he returned to Berlin to work for the German office of W.S. Crawford. Schleger arrived in England in 1932 where his contacts among Crawford’s modernist designers, notably Edward McKnight Kauffer RDI and Ashley Havinden RDI, helped establish him at the centre of London’s avant-garde design community. As a result of his success Schleger stayed in Britain and became a naturalized citizen in 1939.
