Swissted Holiday Party and Type Quiz
2017 Holiday Party and Exhibition Opening at Type Directors Club — November 30, 2017
The Type Directors Club in New York kicked off the 2017 holidays with food, drinks, and music! The occasion is the opening of the first all-type Swissted poster exhibition with designer Mike Joyce giving a brief introduction to his poster series inspired by music and Swiss Modernism.
Swissted is an ongoing project by graphic designer Mike Joyce. Drawing from his love of punk rock and Swiss Modernism. Mike 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.
Following Mike’s remarks, the video shows highlights of the Type Quiz, a fun mixer and trivia game hosted by an entertaining duo, Matteo Bologna and Elizabeth Carey Smith.
