Swissted is an ongoing project by artist and 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—not Helvetica. Every single one of these amazing shows actually happened!
After receiving an overwhelming response from both fans of graphic design and music alike, Mike decided to create an official Swissted shop. All posters sold here are of the finest museum quality Epson prints, on enhanced matte cover stock, and printed with archival inks. Each design comes in three sizes and are honestly even more beautiful in print than their online counterpart.
Swissted posters have been carried in the gift shops of London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Baltic Centre of Contemporary Art, and Tokyo's Warehouse Terrada. In 2015 six prints were selected for Swiss Style, an exhibition at the Museum of Design, Zürich and are now archived in its permanent collection. In 2017 See Hear, a type-centric Swissted poster show, opened at the Type Directors Club. In 2018 ten Swissted prints were added to the permanent collection of the Poster House Museum in New York City.
