Published quarterly from 1958-1965 (17 issues, 18 numbers; issue 17/18 was a double issue), Neue Grafik was the most important journal responsible for disseminating contemporary and historical Swiss functional design ideas and philosophies. The journal’s sparse cover, rigorous structure and four-column grid (which extends to the interior pages) is designed entirely of text; meant to inform rather than illustrate the issues content.

Lohse, A Logical Sequence in Graphic Design by Hans Neuburg, Designing a Commercial Catalog by LMNV, The Policy of a Museum of Industrial Design by Hans Neuburg, A Student Magazine (Ulm HfG) by LMNV, The Lettering and Design of Commercial Goods by Hans Neuburg, Display Stands for Books and Handkerchiefs by Hans Gugelot by Hans Neuburg, Two Folding Bookcases by Gerard Ifert, The Geigy Exhibition-Truck by Gerard Ifert, and Two New Geigy Packages by Nelly Rudin.
