    Atlas Studio: Rietveld Diploma Posters

Welcome to the beautifully-designed world of Swiss studio Atlas

Posted by James Cartwright,

Jonas Wandeler first came to our attention back in 2009 with his wonderful Playlist Magazine, a physical publication and mix tape based on last.fm’s recommendations database. Since then he’s been honing his design skills at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and has subsequently joined forces with Martin Andereggen and Claudio Gasser to form Atlas Studio, a Zurich-based design consultancy specialising in all things print.

What most appeals about Atlas’ work is their tendency to experiment with hand-rendered elements, creating loose, bold graphics and accompanying them with immaculate typography; a skill showcased particularly well in their promotional material for the Rietveld graduate show. Also impressive is their straight-up layout work (something we don’t discuss often enough in relation to graphic design) it’s crisp, simple and intuitive, arguably the best you can achieve with this oft-overlooked discipline.
