Acclaimed Swiss graphic designer Rosmarie Tissi (1937- ) works out of her Zurich studio, formerly shared with her late partner Sigi Odermatt. Tissi’s highly recognizable posters feature vivid colors and bold abstract forms. For many years, Tissi designed the posters for an annual open-air concert festival in Zurich called the Serenaden. In this example from 1999, Tissi arranges simple shapes to evoke the outdoor setting (the sun or moon at the top), the forms of the instruments, and the crescendo of the music.

Tissi’s posters have been exhibited internationally and she received the Swiss Grand Award for Design in 2018.
