“Swissted is an ongoing project by graphic designer mike joyce, owner of stereotype design in new york city. 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 design is set in berthold akzidenz grotesk medium, all lowercase. Many of these posters are now available for sale in three different sizes at print-process. Every single one of these shows actually happened.”

This is a way awesome project that deserves the attention it’s been getting, I just wish I had thought of it first. There are some great layouts represented and it would be nice to see a big set of these on a wall. I’d imagine the experience of witnessing them in print is a totally different experience than taking them in as clever little thumbnails online.
