Pharma records: Geigy Medomin picture flexi

Swiss pharma company Geigy was famous for its graphic design, with Karl Gerstner, Armin Hoffmann and other "Swiss Style" masters working for them. Here's a flexi-disc from one of their promo record series for Medomin sleeping pills (designer not credited). More Medomin-records in my next post.

Pharma records: Vifor 7" picture discs

Records seem to have been a favored promotional gift of the pharmaceutical industry. Over the years, I have acquired a little collection from different companies (I also happen to live in a city that is the home of big pharma companies). Here's a first selection, the picture 7" records from the Vifor company.

Update: A friend just told me there's a work by Swiss artist Francis Baudevin based on exactly these records, and he seems to have one more!
