Rosmarie Tissi: Graphic Design
First solo monograph covering Rosmarie Tissi’s contributions to graphic design
The designs of acclaimed Swiss graphic designer Rosmarie Tissi are characterized by an objectively clear yet undogmatic style.
A defining aspect of Tissi’s work is her playful approach, combined with a predilection for bold color contrasts, typeface, and geometrical shapes. Her individual style has lost none of its originality and freshness in almost 60 years of design work, a feat which is celebrated in this first synopsis of her complete graphical oeuvre.
Presenting a rich collection of magazines, logos, corporate images, headline fonts, advertisements, packaging, and more, this volume reveals and celebrates Tissi’s achievements, unparalleled among female Swiss graphic designers of her generation. Rosmarie Tissi: Graphic Design also spotlights Tissi's posters for theatre productions, exhibitions, and events and cements her position as the “Grande Dame of Graphic Design.”
