The International Typographic Style, also known as the Swiss Style, is a graphic design style developed in Switzerland in the 1950s that emphasizes cleanliness, readability and objectivity. Hallmarks of the style are asymmetric layouts, use of a grid, sans-serif typefaces like Akzidenz Grotesk, and flush left, ragged right text. The style is also associated with a preference for photography in place of illustrations or drawings. Many of the early International Typographic Style works featured typography as a primary design element in addition to its use in text, and it is for this that the style is named.
We had to make a package, I used a Lean Cuisine package, (it was what I was eating for lunch that day) using Helvetica, a typeface used with Swiss Design, or modern design.
The second project is for my History of Graphic Design class, we had to choose a country and focus on their design, and make a presentation. We made a movie, I will post the quicktime on youtube soon and give a link. These cookies and boxes were our handouts for the class. I think they turned out cute.
