Basetica has been designed for the project ‘Open Switzerland’. The Geneva-based GVA Studio wanted to celebrate its entrance into the Base group: 3 graphic agencies in Europe (Brussels) and America (New York, Santiago). They wanted to show their commitment to the ‘Swiss’ graphic design, with all its qualities of precision and rigour. And in the same time to present Switzerland far from its common stereotypes.

 

So, Basetica wants to be a ‘Helvetica for 2013’, open minded, neat and modern. Sometimes a bit raw, but always clean and discrete, Basetica ironically recalls the ‘Swiss International Style’ of the 50s and 60s.

 

A basic version of the Medium weight is available for free on the website
