How was Postmodern Graphic Design influenced by the International Typographic Style

In my 3rd year of the Graphic Design course we had to choose a topic for our dissertation and appropriately design the final outcome. I’m a fan of Modernism and am particularly fascinated with how the precise Swiss Graphic Design is at the base of its complete opposite - Postmodern.

The safety pin is a play on Wolfgang Weingart's reputation as 'Swiss Punk' in the history of Graphic Design.
One of the circles is 'turning away' breaking the rule, thus creating a sparkle that symbolises the New Wave.
