Graphic & Typeface Design (NYC)
Hi. I’m a graphic designer, typographer, typeface designer, and educator—specializing in the conceptualization and design of books / editorial design projects, typefaces, exhibitions, signage and wayfinding systems, and visual identities.
                 After three+ years collaborating together in Zurich, since 2017 I’ve been running the New York arm of the Swiss design studio Hubertus Design—run by Jonas Voegeli (Founding Partner) and Kerstin Landis (Partner)—bringing our unique approach towards graphic design to New York, and allowing us to continue our work both independently and collaboratively.
                 Multiple projects that I’ve led at Hubertus Design have received various design awards, including: The Best Book Design from All Over the World (Golden Letter) 2018, The Most Beautiful Swiss Books 2018, 2016, The Best Book Design from All Over the World (Honorable Mention) 2017, and The Most Beautiful German Books 2016. Several of my typeface designs were also featured in the ECAL’s 2016 publication and exhibition ECAL Graphic Design.
                 My professional focuses remain on collaborating within the artistic, architectural, cultural, educational, scientific, and political sectors. Since 2017, I’ve been teaching BFA graphic design and typography courses at Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of Art & Design. Since Autumn 2018, I’ve been teaching MFA courses within Pratt Institute’s Graduate Communications Design Program as well.
                 I completed my MFA studies between two Swiss schools—the ECAL / Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne and the HGK / Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst Basel. I received my BFA in Graphic Design from the School of Art at WMU/ Western Michigan University.
