Swissted is a 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 (almost) nothing to do with one another, Mike has redesigned vintage punk, hardcore, new wave, and indie rock show flyers into International Typographic Style posters.
Each design is set in lowercase Berthold Akzidenz-Grotesk medium. Every single poster is based on a real gig that took place with the headline and support acts listed.
After receiving an overwhelming response from both fans of graphic design and music alike, Mike decided to create an official Swissted shop.
In 2015 six Swissted prints were selected for Swiss Style, an exhibition at the Museum of Design, Zurich.
