Josef Müller-Brockmann: Design Manual for the Swiss Federal Railways

Text by Andres Janser, Peter Spalinger.

Josef Müller-Brockmann: Design Manual for the Swiss Federal Railways

Chronicling an overhaul of the "visual communication system” of Swiss train signage

In 1980, the Swiss Federal Railways contracted one of their country’s leading graphic designers, Josef Müller-Brockmann (1914–96), to overhaul the design of their train stations’ signage, a project that resulted in a “visual information system” using intuitive pictograms to orient rail passengers, doing so largely without the aid of language.

Müller-Brockmann's manual, expanded in 1992, is a complex, large-scale design project that met its users’ needs through its emphatic rationalism and consistency. This reprint in English translation—part of Lars Müller's XX The Century of Print series—makes the manual accessible for the first time to a broader public, and is one of the most significant projects by this legendary designer, well known for his posters and the influential magazine he founded, New Graphic Design (1958–65). This 200-page edition features a transparent PVC jacket, an interview with the contemporary Swiss graphic designer Peter Spalinger and text by curator Andres Janser.
