Nolan Paparelli is a Swiss graphic and type designer currently based in Munich, Germany. His practice focuses mainly in developing editorial design, visual identity, web and type design solutions for clients across the cultural and commercial fields. After graduating with honors from ECAL/University of Art and Design of Lausanne in 2015 with a Bachelor in Graphic design, he has then worked on various commissions in collaboration with Editions Attinger, Herburg Weiland, Kairos Studio and Swiss Typefaces among others. His work is highly typography-driven, with a strong sense of detail and often tends to make parallels between contemporary graphic design and a certain passion for current type design.
