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. She often integrates clever, but always clear, typography into her designs. For many years, Tissi designed the posters for an annual open-air concert festival in Zurich called the Serenaden. In this example from 1998, Tissi evokes the atmosphere of the concerts by illustrating a moon in a darkening sky, along with concentric lines that seem to represent both the light of the moon and the vibrations of the music.
Tissi’s posters have been exhibited internationally and she received the Swiss Grand Award for Design in 2018.
