Essay

To the Point

For the second time in a row, the jury have decided to honour the work coming from the 'Prill & Vieceli' visual communication studio; they also won the Jan Tschichold Prize in 2007. They understand their craft and have acquired an extraordinary feel for thematic peculiarities. Each and every publication has got its own individual character, and the design is adapted every time so as to be perfectly suited to the content: from format to typographical execution to visual presentation, every book is given its own language. Those two graphic designers from Zurich are equally versed in traditional book design as well as design trends, but they're never deaf to special requests from the client. All of these qualities are apparent in 'Arosa', which, as a traditionally designed nonfiction book with a Redesign look, resurrects the idea of modernism that characterised chic 1920s and 30s health resorts, and 'In der Mitte des Volkes', a picture and report book, internationally acclaimed at this year's Leipzig Book Fair, shows its table of contents on the cover. The thematic breadth is enormous. Artist monographs on Nele Stecher or David Willen also attest to the creative diversity of their books as well as a tribute to the historical Letzigrund stadium or the poetry volume 'Eine zornige Blume will ich sein' by author Elisabeth J. Stirnimann. To Tania Prill and Alberto Vieceli it is not the recognisability of their personal style that matters the most, but how they can make the design address the content and interact with it. With care and precision and a wealth of exciting ideas, every book becomes a formally beautiful object that you don't mind leaving in full view on the coffee table.
