Ever heard of it?

According to… it's a style loved for its "precision, clarity, readability and typography".

I can understand the love.

Good typography is better than porn. It's one of those things that just makes my day seeing a beautiful piece of graphic design with the perfect typography. Anyone who has ever tried to put text on their work knows how horribly difficult it can be. You'll create something amazing only to ruin it completely with poorly placed text that just doesn't fit.

The Swiss style is great, and inspiring;……

Just makes you want to get into some design right now doesn't it? It looks easy because there's a minimalistic aspect to the style but it's incredibly difficult to get everything just right.

What's important, I think, is that when you start a project already have the typography in mind. Even if the piece isn't from a typography style, if you plan on putting your signature a title in there, think about it before not after the fact!

Happy Swissing.

Oh, and happy holidays!

Hi, you're welcome, thanks for making such cool artwork. I envy people who can draw/paint and are able to put what they see in their minds onto paper for the world to see.

Aw thank you! Though I'm still not able to even do that myself haha (Yet!) It always seems to fall short of what I imagine but I guess there is always something to learn that way!

I wonder if any artist has ever truly thought their creation was exactly what they imagined. In some cases though they might find that what they ended up with was better.I think they trick is to try new things. If all you ever do is the same style in the same way you don't learn, as you said.

I try all kinds of things but I'm never really great at any of them!
