Bruno Monguzzi

Swiss graphic designer, Bruno Monguzi, enlists hierarchy and structure in his work through the use of typography, color and form. There's a balancing and counterpoint in his compositions by the way he organizes information. He creates a dynamic rhythm between the images, forms, typography and color.

For an interview with Monguzi that appeared in Eye Magazine, No. 1, Vol. 1 in 1990 click here.

The images below are from the Skira monograph, Bruno Monguzi, Fifty Years of Paper, 1961-2011.
