The Eidg Turnfest (ETF) short for the Eidgenossiesche Turnfest (Federal Gymnastics Festival) is the largest Gymnastics event in Switzerland. The first ever turnfest took place in Aarau in 1832. The event is still in operation today. As of June 2019, Turnfest has hosted around 69,000 gymnasts and 200,000 spectators.

Hans Falk (1918 - 2002) was a Swiss painter, poster artist and graphic designer. Between 1943 and 1964, Falk designed a total of 58 posters, 28 of which were named the "Best Poster" by the Swiss Department of Home Affairs. After moving to England in 1958, Falk decided to spend more time on his career as a fine artist and began creating abstract expressionist paintings. In 1961, Falk received the Award for Excellence at the Society of Illustrators exhibition in New York for his Marcel Mareau bibliophile series.
