Extended by popular demand!!Type Directors Club is pleased to present its winter exhibition — “See/Hear”, a collection of all-type posters from New York City designer Mike Joyce’s Swissted project, which combines his fascination with punk rock and modern Swiss type.
Swissted is an ongoing project by graphic designer Mike Joyce. 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 hundreds of International Typographic Style posters. Each design is set in lowercase Berthold Akzidenz-Grotesk medium. Every single one of these amazing shows actually happened.
Mike Joyce is the founder of Stereotype Design in New York City, a studio specializing in wide-ranging projects for the entertainment industry. He has designed album packaging for established artists including Iggy Pop, Katy Perry, The Cars, Fall Out Boy, The Replacements, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Natalie Merchant, The Lemonheads, Willie Nelson, Morphine, Heart, Miles Davis, and Aretha Franklin.
