MARKUS OSTERWALDER developed an interest in the Olympic Movement during his studies to become a graphic designer in Switzerland. Following a visit to the Olympic Library in Lausanne in 1990, he started building his own Olympic collection of books, pictures, and memorabilia. He has visited every edition of the Games since Lillehammer 1994, taking photographs, collecting memorabilia, and meeting designers to discuss their preparations. In 2010, Markus was appointed to lead, develop and design the „Olympic Memorabilia Project“, supported by numerous Olympic collectors worldwide. His latest book project is entitled Olympic History in Graphic Design, to be published in 2019.
