Purpose and responsibilities

The Swiss Graphic Design Foundation classifies and documents the entire lifeworks of acclaimed graphic designers who are now retired or deceased. As such, our focus is not limited to individual works or particular media; we also attach great value to studies and sketches.

Experts within the Foundation, together with the designers or bequeathers, select the works which best represent the artists who created them. As a result, a collection of the highest quality is emerging, which will ensure Swiss graphic design receives the international recognition it deserves.
