swissted is an ongoing project by graphic designer mike joyce. drawing from his love of punk rock and swiss modernism, two movements that have (almost) nothing to do with one another, mike has redesigned vintage punk, hardcore, new wave, and indie rock show flyers into international typographic style posters. each design is set in lowercase berthold akzidenz-grotesk medium (not helvetica).:
Each poster reflects the traditional international typographic style posters, each sized to the standard swiss kiosk dimensions of 35.5″ by 50″. The typeface used of course is Berthold Akzidenz Grotesk Medium.
Unspooling poster great modern version of the international typographic style. The visual characteristic of this poster is very clear for its audience. This poster was made for an art and cinema exhibition for international artists. I like how the word is being unspooled like yarn or unwinding what the artists have to present in the exhibit.
