A calendar with each month interpreted as a “Swiss style” poster.
Sometimes referred to as the “International style” of graphic design, the “Swiss style” is a minimalist, highly geometric, abstract design style that originated in Switzerland in the 1950s and was particularly prevalent in 60s and 70s poster, book and packaging design.
Although the style fell out of favour with the post-modernist movement, it has enjoyed a revival in the last decade: here are some original designs re-created for the web, and here the style is retro-applied to some vintage band show flyers. œ
