ABOUT







Swiss Legacy [Xavier Encinas]

Swiss Legacy is about Swiss design and Swiss type. The page is run by Xavier Encinas, a French Art Director who lives in Paris. He is also known as Rumbero Design. In 2000, he started business school studies at l'Institut Supérieur du Commerce. Since 2004, he works as a freelance Art Director specializing in print, logotype and web design.

Most designers mean by Swiss style the forms and ideas that made Sitzerland a dominant force in graphic and type design starting in the 1950s, as characterized by typefaces such as Helvetica (Max Miedinger), Haas Grotesk, Univers (Adrian Frutiger), Frutiger (Adrian Frutiger) and Folio (Konrad F. Bauer and Walter Baum).
