SWISSTED vintage posters in Motion Graphics
With this Motion Graphics tribute we celebrated the emblematic Akzidenz-Grotesk typeface and famous music bands of the 70s & 80s! This vintage style video was done with a mix of Swiss design and some smooth animation.
The unique backstory of this film is that it was born in a bookstore! We came across these Swissted posters created by Mike Joyce, and we were immediately charmed by their originality. So, we contacted him with only one idea in mind: put these posters into movement in motion graphics. We also wanted to produce a custom-made soundtrack with clips of all these iconic songs. And that’s how it started!
Mike Joyce is a New-York designer, a rock music and graphic design fan. He’s well-known for his album covers of various artists such as Katy Perry and Iggy Pop. One day he decided to transform the vintage flyers of the punk rock bands of his youth into Swiss design style posters.
Each poster expresses a new aesthetic with strict lines, colorful geometric shapes, overlapping and transparency effects, and text in Bertold Akzidenz Grotesk medium. We’re excited about this amazing old school animated video that will stand the test of time.
