I've always loved and appreciated the philsophies of classic Swiss grid-based graphic design.
But, up until now I didn't really have a way to spend as much time with these designs as I wanted to. You can only learn so much from saving things to a folder and looking at them from time to time. I wanted a way to spend more time with these designs, recreate them (to the best of my ability), and maybe even learn from them to make my own designs more creative.
If you have a design you'd like to see me recreate, kindly tweet it to me at @gdcolwell.
Also, please note that work is posted in reverse chronological order, that means newest is at the top, and oldest is at the bottom.
