Graphic Design: Wunderbar design from Swiss publishing masters Ilg/Trüb!

Posted by Liv Siddall,

I’m not really into the whole “love at first sight” business but when I saw that pineapple next to that dog poo, I knew this was a design studio I could seriously get into. Ilg/Trüb are two really, really good-looking Swiss designers, Marlon Ilg and Simon Trüb, whose work ushers in strange illustration, acid-neon colours and typographic knowledge. The alarm bells that are usually set off in my brain by the words “Swiss” and “design” are completely neutralised by our shared delight in the texture, pastels and humour of certain illustrators. Interestingly, even their more typographic work such as the Langnau Jazz Nights posters still seem to have a shot of weirdness coursing through them. Fantastisch!
