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.
