Mapping Graphic Design History in Switzerland
The publication is not just another book that retells the success story of Swiss graphic design. Rather, it is a collection of essays deriving from academic research that explores the historical dimensions of the field in Switzerland, from producing to archiving and exhibiting. Including contributions from members of all the Swiss universities of arts and design, it focuses on the education of graphic designers as well as issues of professional graphic design practice that have regularly been overlooked in the past. Four visual essays that divide the different sections of the book help to extend its scope beyond the possibilities of textual narratives produced by academic research.
