Swissted, which is a well-known ongoing project by graphic designer Mike Joyce, shows the swiss modernism style. Mike has redesigned vintage punk, hardcore, new wave and indie rock show flyers into international typographic style posters. To create these outcomes he didn’t use helvetica, like others, instead he used a lowercase set Berthold Akzidenz-Grotesk medium font. In his designs he used a lot of negative space and made it look very clean and simple. Using asymmetrical layouts, the outcome gets character. Next to using the swiss style he sometimes uses the psychedelic style which represents the use of curvilinear shapes and clashing colours or how I call it, the 3D effect.
