Swiss Posters

Check out the wonderful collection of swiss posters that have been collected in the Carnegie Mellon Special Collections. Sponsered by the School of Design at CMU, this website presents the posters in a nice pre-categorized way. The information section of the site is quite interesting: giving a bit of history about Swiss posters - the Swiss School legacy and then background about the collection.

Organized by the following categories: Type Dominant, Hand Lettering, Illustration, B/W Photography, Color Photography, Concerts, Exhibits, Theater/Film. Sports, Fashion, Food and Drink, Consumer Products, Tourism/Travel, Politics and Safety - the collection can easily be browsed. Each poster is presented with the known data - date, title, client, ad agency, designer and printer. Within each category you can move forward and back and see a larger version of the poster in a pop up window (although the icon for this - a square - led me to think that it would take me back to the main menu rather than popping up an enlargement).

In addition to the browse (Tour) mode, you can search as well by a variety of criteria.

The collection focuses on posters from the 1970's forward.
