Post-Punk & Post Rock Albums redone as postage stamps on Swiss modernist design principles.







Swiss modernism and post-punk/post-rock are natural partners. Not long ago the good people of Bleep.com unveiled two breathtaking posters celebrating the landmarks of post-punk and post-rock. For each genre “Dorothy” generated an incredible poster of 42 postage stamps, each celebrating a different album. Both posters are 4 colour print with silver foil and measure 80x60 centimeters. The post-punk poster features seminal albums such as Throbbing Gristle’s 20 Jazz Funk Greats, The Teardrop Explodes’ Kilimanjaro, The Cure’s Pornography, and The Jesus and Mary Chain’s Psychocandy. Meanwhile, the post-rock album celebrates Slint’s Spiderland, Stereolab’s Dots and Loops, Mogwai’s Young Team, Radiohead’s Kid A, and Tortoise’s Millions Now Living Will Never Die. In every case the album is represented by a spare, “Swiss”-inspired visual motif and lists the name of the artist, the album title, the running time, the label, and the release date—thus proving that the International Typographic Style is an efficient method of transmitting information.

new in the shop. what could be cuter than a Fiat 500 and a giant champagne bottle?


Behind The Scenes


How do you start to design? I'm often asked. It varies from project to project but often it starts with the saying, joke or word. What do I want the word to feel like? What shapes would represent that? What color(s)? From there I begin to doodle... sometimes I tape it to the wall and look at it for weeks, sometimes it comes out in a quick and easy idea (I love those). Creativity is a muscle you have to workout daily. The more you use it, the more that springs forward. I want to tell you more about this process this summer, a peek behind the curtain... This is the type I developed for the upcoming new Bubble Collection release we're debuting at the Las Vegas Market at the end of this month. I can't wait to show it all to you.
