swissted

swissted is an ongoing project by NYC based graphic designer Mike Joyce. Drawing from his love of punk rock and Swiss modernism, two movements that have absolutely nothing to do with one another, Mike has redesigned vintage punk, hardcore, and indie rock show flyers into international typographic style posters. Each poster is sized to the standard Swiss kiosk dimensions of 35.5 inches wide by 50 inches high and set in Berthold Akzidenz Grotesk medium, all lowercase. Every single one of these shows actually happened.

  1. Holy. Crap. This is off the charts ridiculous. There are so many winners in here … but the Black Flag / Descendents / Minutemen at the Cuckoo’s Nest poster might be tops.

  2. Simply sick! What else can you say. Respect. #livefordesign

  3. *wow* *wow* *wow*

  4. Really? Really really really?? He’s replaced text. There is no design here coming from what the music actually is, or represents. It’s just PRETTY. I’m shocked.

  5. You’re right Grumplestiltskin. It is merely decorative because there is no relation to the subject whatsoever.

  6. I like the valuable info you provide in your articles.
    I will bookmark your weblog and check again here regularly.

    I’m quite sure I will learn many new stuff right here! Best of luck for the next!
