Swiss Graphic Design
2007-10-15 07:53:00
Book DescriptionSwiss graphic design and "the Swiss Style" are crucial elements in the history of modernism.During the 1920s and ’30s, skills traditionally associated with Swiss industry, particularly pharmaceuticals and mechanical engineering, were matched by those of the country’s graphic designers, who produced their advertising and technical literature.These pioneering graphic artists saw design as part of industrial production and searched for anonymous, objective visual communication.They chose photographic images rather than illustration, and typefaces that were industrial-looking rather than those designed for books.Written by noted design authority Richard Hollis, this lavishly illustrated volume looks at the uniquely clear graphic language developed by such Swiss designers as Theo Ballmer, Max Bill, Adrian Frutiger, Karl Gerstner, Armin Hoffman, Ernst Keller, Herbert Matter, Josef Müller-Brockmann, and Jan Tschichold.The style of these artists received worldwide admir...
