Event description
Launch, presentation and celebration of the publication “Swiss Graphic Design Histories” (Scheidegger & Spiess).

About this event

“Swiss Graphic Design Histories” offers a new investigation and comprehensive survey of Switzerland’s graphic design landscape. Based on extensive research by scholars of design history and with a multiple and inclusive approach, it reaches beyond the usual canon of what has become known as the “Swiss Style” and its well-known epicenters.

This publication features visual artifacts and archival documents alongside conversations with influential designers of the past decades, as well as new essays discussing key terms and concepts of the discipline. Read more.

“Swiss Graphic Design Histories” builds upon the results of the research project “Swiss Graphic Design and Typography Revisited.” Involving twelve researchers from seven Swiss universities and twelve associate researchers, and having a duration of four years, it is the largest academic research project in the field of design ever funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation SNSF.

On July 1st, the editors and contributors, publisher Scheidegger & Spiess and the Berner Design Stiftung invite you to celebrate the launch of the publication. A presentation of the publication concept and each volume will be followed by a conversation between the publisher and the designers of the publication. The evening will end with a toast to the publication.

Due to Covid 19 requirements, the number of participants is limited to 50.
