Swiss Graphic Design and Typography Revisited

Seven Swiss universities engage in joint research into the history of Swiss graphic design and typography. With ‘Swiss Graphic Design and Typography Revisited’, the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) is for the first-ever time supporting a project in the Sinergia programme in which researchers from seven Swiss universities will investigate the role and status of Swiss graphic design from today’s perspective.

It is divided into three sub-projects: ‘Principles of Education’, ‘Networks of Practice’ and ‘Strategies of Dissemination’. This three-year project will begin in October 2016 and is the biggest research collaboration established in the design field since the SNSF began its activities.
