Among the Swiss graphic designers who so greatly shaped the direction of our profession in the last century, perhaps none was more influential than Josef Müller-Brockmann, (1914-1996).

Shown above are a selection of his posters.

Wow. A decade sure does slip by fast… today I stumbled across an editorial I wrote for Icograda’s BoardMessage 11 years ago this month, here.

Yoikes.

In rememberance…

+  +  +  +  +

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place: and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie

In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.

—John McCrae (1872–1918)

We are shaped by our thoughts…

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
