Niklaus Troxler (b. 1947) is known primarily for his jazz posters. These were initially produced for the festival he organised in the Swiss town of Willisau, but he was soon in demand to provide images for the entire (free jazz) scene. His work is generally powerful and unmistakeable – and that in spite of constant variations in form, colour, and typography.
