Under the title ’Kreative contro Corona’, the newspaper bz Basel in collaboration with Pro Innerstadt Basel, Basel Live and jjsscc, asked the Art Directors, Graphic Designers and Illustrators of Basel to create posters to contain the Corona virus. 107 artists and designers responded to this invitation and presented 200 posters. A jury selected 50 of the most surprising projects, including mine, which will be on display from 5 to 21 July 2020 in an exhibition at the Rappaz Museum Basel. At the same time they will be displayed in the city of Basel and will be part of the poster collection of the Schule für Gestaltung Basel.

These 70x100 posters were printed in single digital copies and displayed at the entrances to the various exhibitions. An idealistic commission, but one I also saw as prestigious and typographically stimulating. Most of these posters have ended up in the renowned collection of the Museum für Gestaltung in Zurich, where they are presented to the students of the Hochschule für Gestaltung.
 
The first poster was shown in the exhibition ’100 years of Swiss Graphic Design’ at the Zurich Museum für Gestaltung in 2012.
