What is Swiss Style Typography?

Posted in Tips, Typography, Web Design10 months ago • Written by 11 Comments

The world would probably thank Switzerland for the invention of the Swiss knife but the world could not thank it any better for the popularization of the Swiss Style. That though this famous design style isn’t originally Swiss-made, the touch of the country is still present even to the smallest detail of the design.

Swiss Style typography, though traced from Russia, Germany and the Netherlands, was made popular by Swiss graphic designers. They have used it with many Swiss cultural institutions, political advertisements and a lot more because it was thought to have suited the drastically increasing global postwar market. It was used in street signs, maps, public service announcements, etc. In this demand, institutions, corporations and small firms needed a universal identification method that could be easily related to them. The trick was, the method should be universal enough to be understood by every citizen of the world. The Olympics was one good example of a global institutional event Swiss style helped because it has used the simplest symbols using the most universal colors possible.

The tale began in 1987 when PhD student Tom Knoll wrote a graphics application in a Macintosh Plus. The software was used to display gray scale images on a monochrome display. Knoll called it ‘Display.’ We could now consider Display as the unofficial father of our beloved Photoshop.
