Everett & Everett Mono

Type design, 2021

Everett is a contemporary neo-grotesque typeface known for its characteristic sharpness. The font’s design is balanced with an organic drawing and a particular digital flavor. Strong typographic cuts add a high tension while still keeping a natural reading comfort, finding the right balance between a font that is graphic yet fluid. The typeface now spans 2 collections, the standard Everett and its monospaced variation Everett Mono, offering 40 styles in total. Both font families are now available exclusively on TYPE.WELTKERN®!

Edition Taube

Visual identity, typeface, 2021

In collaboration with the founders of Edition Taube, a publishing house specialized in artists’ books & editions based in Munich / Zurich, I developed a subtle redesign of their corporate identity. The new identity is very simple and straightforward: one font, one cut, a few type sizes and clear grid systems. This way, the system is simple to use in-house. The typeface FT Kunst Grotesk gives a contemporary edge, used in a bold way. It’s now available on Formula Type!

Gasteig

Visual identity, poster series, 2020
with PARAT.cc (Jonas Beuchert,
Tilman Schlevogt & Johanna Wenger)

Winning proposal as part of a pitch for Gasteig, Europe’s biggest cultural center in Munich, made with PARAT.cc. The goal was to develop a CD system, in order to avoid confusion between events that the Gasteig hosts and offers. As a nod to the old logo, we designed a type system with brackets as a frame that allows type compositions in the center reacting to what is being promoted. It’s been designed to be flexible and responsive.

MF21

Poster series, 2021
Self-initiated

This poster series emerged out of a commission for a magazine celebrating 20 years of the Swiss music festival Festi’neuch in 2021 (hence the name “MF21” for Magazine Festi’neuch 2021). Using only typography in b/w, the posters extract and remix various content from the magazine into a poster format. It’s a way of rediscovering the experience of the magazine in a different way.

Counterpoint association

Visual identity, website, 2018
with KAIROS STUDIO
Art Direction: Sebastian Vargas
Coding: Alfatih Al Zouabi

Counterpoint association is a Zurich based non-profit organisation that investigates the present through multiple art forms, create alternative narratives to foster critical thinking and mediate new territories for culture. The whole identity is constructed by bringing together the four most spoken languages in Switzerland, inspired by the aesthetics of the federal bureaucracy while adding a more contemporary, technical feeling.

Matière Vive

Visual identity, 2018

Modular identity system developed for Matière Vive, a Swiss based practice specialised in digital media and websites. The logotype is composed on a dots grid that allow to write their initials “MV” in various different ways, reflecting the variety of their work and the ability to adapt themselves in any kind of constraints within a project. The use of only lowercases refer to the web designer’s way of typing code.

Everett Lukumí

Custom type design, 2017

Diccionario Lukumí-Español offers a modern perspective on the Lukumí language, which is used mainly by the Yoruba community in Cuba during Santería ceremonies. Lukumí is an hybrid language, mixed of Spanish and African Yoruba. Commissioned by the designer Laura-Issé Tusevo, I developed a custom version of my Everett typeface for the publication. Based on the most recurrent letters in Lukumí, the typeface plays with double letters and thin punctuation, creating surprising rhythms throughout the various definitions of the dictionary.

PUCH Open Air

Visual identity, typeface, 2017
with HERBURG WEILAND
Art Direction: Tom Ising

“Familial” describes best the atmosphere of the PUCH festival. This small Bavarian open air festival stays authentic and charming, offering every year an inevitable summer rendez-vous in the countryside of Munich. Using only typography, the key visual creates a direct link to a known food icon, which is also popular and highly consumed in the area.

Editorial design, 2017
with HERBURG WEILAND
Art Direction: Stephanie Ising

Baumeister is a monthly architecture magazine published by Callwey in Munich and designed by Herburg Weiland since 2011.

Festi’neuch

Visual identity, 2016
with Le Grand 8
Art Direction: Yann Do

In collaboration with multidisciplinary studio Le Grand 8, I contributed on the establishment of the festival’s new visual identity. Reflecting the music festival’s atmosphere and audience, we refreshed their graphic identity with vibrant colors, playful typography and bespoke logotypes. I’ve also worked on the overall application of the identity, including designs of posters, newspaper, ads, wristbands, merchandising, etc.

Daniel Schelling — En noir & blanc

Editorial design, 2015
with Virginie Angéloz and Yann Do

This photographic book published by Éditions Attinger traces back 30 years of political, associative and cultural life in the Val-de-Travers area in the canton of Neuchâtel (Switzerland) captured by photographer Daniel Schelling. We kept the design of the book simple and radical, in order to highlight the strength and sensitivity of the photographic work.
