From 1941–1970, J.R. Geigy A.G., the Swiss pharmaceutical and chemical company headquartered in Basel worked with leading designers to create a visual vocabulary know as the “Geigy style”. This ‘anonymous’ language was often (not exclusively) represented by white space, the use of Akzidenz-Grotesk type, photographs, stylized graphics or drawings, color contrasts and the use of a grid.
