Bruno Monguzzi is a Swiss graphic designer. He was born in Mendrisio, Switzerland in 1941. He later moved to Geneva with his family and attended the Graphic Design Course at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs. In 1960 he traveled to London and attended Gestalt psychology, typography and photography courses at St Martin‘s School of Art (now the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design) and the London College of Printing (now the London College of Communication).

After working with Dennis Bailey in London and Charles Gagnon and James Volkus in Montreal, Monguzzi moved to Milan in 1968 to join the Studio Boggeri – at the time the leading design and advertising agency in Italy. From the early-seventies he worked independently from his atelier in Meride, a secluded village in the South of Switzerland. He received the Premio Bodoni in 1971 and was awarded the distinction Royal Designer for Industry by the Royal Society of Arts, London in 2003. Amongst his most significant projects: the visual identity of the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, the exhibition Mejerchold Majakowskij at Castello Sforzesco in Milan, and the posters for Museo Cantonale d‘Arte in Lugano.
