Donald Brun (1909-1999) was a famous Swiss designer during the “golden age” of Swiss design (prior to 1970). I stumbled across his work this morning on Pinterest and I’m absolutely in love with his work for the European shoe company Bata (founded in the 1800’s). Brun’s work is a perfect example of graphic design history from the period: simple, playful, bold and graphic design with vivid colors. Most posters from the period sell for hundreds, or even thousands of dollars today, but they are truly works of art. One day I’ll get my hands on a few of these. I need to see if there are any books on Burn so I can learn more about him and see more of his work. Until I get do, get into more of his work below.
