Swiss Style Now

Around sixty years after the international triumph of Swiss Style, the exhibition Swiss Style Now raises the question of national design tendencies. Works by Swiss designers and graphic studios from the last ten years are presented. The exhibition offers an overview of the protagonists; works such as posters, books, brochures and flyers from studios and designers illustrate just how versatile, emotional and fun Swiss graphic design is today. After a trip around the world, the exhibition will be shown in Switzerland for the first time.
