Current Swiss Design

wysong's picture

I'm searching for info on Swiss Design that is currently being produced. I'm a huge fan of the older design but i'm trying to research how it's evolved since.

I'm looking for blogs, sites, etc.

The best site i've found is the Slanted Typo Blog...Any info would be Appreciated!

A more subversive take on the old international style.

Be sure to check out Die Gestalten Verlag as well. Though located in Berlin, DGV offers some great faces in the Swiss style.

Are you talking strictly type design, or design in general.

If design in general, here is a talented swiss firm:
