There is no better place to get a feel for Switzerland’s long history of graphic design than at grafikSCHWEIZ 18.
This annual gathering for graphic design, new media, games and virtual reality has established itself over the years and we always enjoy going there. With some 130 different national and international artists exhibiting, it is always a feast for the eyes. From icon design to typography and illustration, the invited talents will show off their most innovative and relevant body of work. One of the criteria is that works have to have been produced within the prior year.
In the past, we have enjoyed grafikSCHWEIZ for its interactive exhibits such as a drawing wall where visitors were able to express themselves. Oftentimes, artists are present and eager to answer questions, adding more depth to this unmissable event.
Highlights during grafikSCHWEIZ 18
This year, look out for David Boller, an illustrator who has previously worked for renowned publishers such as Marvel or DC Comics. Along with Michel Fornasier, he will be unveiling a comic series entitled “Bionicman”.
grafikSCHWEIZ 18 will be staged at the formerly industrial Halle 622 in Zürich-Oerlikon. The exhibit will be open daily from 11 AM to 8 PM.
