Josef Müller-Brockmann Poster Collection

Josef Muller Brockmann Poster Collection by Lars Muller via grain edit

Josef Müller-Brockmann’s graphics left a lasting mark on Swiss visual communication from the 1950s onward. His posters demonstrate how a sober, formally reduced language works best for conveying a universal, timeless message. Poster campaigns for longtime clients such as the Tonhalle concert hall in Zürich or the Automobile Club of Switzerland follow strict functional criteria–and yet exhibit a variety of design solutions and exciting, dynamic compositions.

This book presents selected posters by Müller-Brockmann and places them in the context of their own time while also examining the validity of his solutions from today’s point of view.

Pre-order a copy via Lars Muller, Amazon or your local bookstore.

I believe timeless design needs as little design as possible – less, but better – because it concentrates on the essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials. Purity, simplicity.

His use of this actually makes his work look more recent than it says in the 1950s.
