New York-based designer Mike Joyce has combined his love of Swiss minimalist design and classic punk rock in these distinctive posters. The project entitled, 'Swissted' showcases brightly colored, geometric poster designs for musicians such as Pavement, The Velvet Underground, the Talking Heads, Patti Smith and even modern day singers like M.I.A.

The artist has just released a book featuring the full collection of these punk rocker posters through Quirk Books, in what is sure to be a coffee table classic. The designer says that the posters combine his love of "punk rock and Swiss modernism" and that all of the shows in the posters were actually real gigs. These images would make a great gift for anyone who wants to celebrate their love of good design and classic bands.
