The Swiss Poster Collection

The Swiss Poster Collection is a critical selection of works representing the Swiss Posters of the Year competition and other Swiss posters from 1970 to the present. In August 2014 over 300 works were available. The collection contains works by designers such as Max Bill, Paul Bruhwiler, Ruedi Kulling, Herbert Leupin, Josef Muller-Brockmann, Roger Pfund, Ruedi Ruegg, Niklaus Troxler, and Wolfgang Weingart. Swiss posters are created for a variety of purposes, and use form, color, image, and typography to communicate ideas.

The collection can be browsed by categories (‘what’, ‘who’, and ‘when’). It is also possible to search by commercial/cultural purpose, graphic technique, desiger, name of a person who had a role in production, date, and keyword. Images can be downloaded in JPEG format.

The Swiss Poster Collection is a collection of Carnegie Mellon University.
