Stereotype Design

New Yorker Mike Joyce founded Stereotype Design in 1997, a graphic design studio developing projects for commercial, cultural and corporate clients, including designing album covers for artists such as Iggy Pop, The Lemonheads and Aretha Franklin.  Stereotype’s work has been featured by over 40 publications including Print Magazine’s “30 under 30”, and exhibited in the Art Directors Club’s first Young Guns show.

In 2012, Joyce launched Swissted, a personal project combining his love of Swiss Moderism and punk rock by redesigning vintage punk and indie rock show flyers into ‘International Typographic Style’ posters.  Each design is typeset in Berthold Akzidenz- Grotesk Medium, all lowercase, and every one of the shows actually happened.   You can now buy over 200 designs (available in three different sizes) on the website
