Grafik 13 Design Exhibit in Zürich

Grafik 13 in Zürich

This weekend, graphic designers from all corners of Switzerland (and the world) converged onto the Maag event space in Zürich for Grafik 13. A couple hours of time was barely enough to make the rounds once, as almost every piece on display deserved to be studied, examined and interpreted.

Switzerland has a long history of visual design: The Helvetica font was invented here, and the move towards simplicity thanks to Swiss Design has left a lasting mark on an industry.

Grafik 13 provided an in-depth look at today's trends among young Swiss graphic designers, illustrators, typographers and visual artists.

Graphics came in all flavors, including woven into carpets:

On a gigantic wall, a collaborative piece of art was evolving. Visitors of all ages were encouraged to contribute a spark of color:

Viewing beautiful and intriguing visual art is one thing for a design lover like me. Capturing these impressions with a fine camera is quite another.

So I was happy to test drive a retro-looking Olympus OM-D during Grafik 13... The camera's shutter is blazing fast, and the touch-screen display came in handy as the focal point can be determined by simply tipping the screen!
