Georges Calame

Georges Calame (1930-99) born in Geneva in 1930, was highly regarded in Switzerland as a poster designer but was less well know internationally despite travelling extensively. He spent some time in Paris, before opening his own design studio in Geneva,1953. From 1969-75 he was art director of the Pakistan Design Center in Karachi, but also designed the 'Dybs 69' design biennial and the travelling exhibition 'Swiss Graphic Design'. From 1975 to 1993 he created the visual identity of the BCG bank and the 'look and feel' for all its branches. Despite being a prolific designer in many fields it is his poster work that he is renowned for. His posters were selected 15 times at the 'Best Swiss Posters of the Year' event.
