Layout system presenting On’s four different shoe soles.
Each sole is represented in an individual way in a chapter usign four design elements: grids, descriptions, logo patterns and pictures of the sole.
The patterns made of the On logo are allusions of the structure sole. The pictures have their own grid made with elements of the logo.
This systematic approach allows for a free composition, creating desirable overlays and greatly varying layouts.

Ways of Seeing
As part of a Risography workshop, we chose to link subtitled sequences from John Berger's eponymous BBC Documentary series (1972) to contemporary footage (commercials, Pop Culture). Each sequences are displayed succesively in 2 and 4 colors with various rasters.
Together with Noam Benatar, Angelina Yerly and Basil Koller.

Identity proposal for the ZHdK’s 2020 open days.
The concept is based around a combination of the meeting point pictogramm with a « Z ». The arrows are used as a tool for the signalethics. Colorwise, the blue is taken from the Zürich flag and the grey comes from Toni-Areal (ZHdK’s main building)
2nd place, together with Tim Oechslin and Imma Caretta.

Founded in 1999 in London by Alex Attias and later joined by his brother Stephane, Visions Recordings is a Lausanne-based music label who is producing and releasing various styles of soulful music from jazz , soul funk , disco to house and beyond.
Since August 2019, I've been designing about one center label per month.
The diversity of the music on offer and the frequency of production lead to heterogeneous designs
Not to employ a defined graphic system allows for a free and intuitive design, for the use of a multitude of existing and/or custom fonts.
August 2019 - ongoing
Commissioned by faithful Lausanne DJ Askemwhy.
The design relates to the name of the party, Schlag, which stands for punch or stroke in German. In french, it is a slang word for someone or something wandering, decadent or neglected.
The lettering is drawn with a grey pencil on a sheet of paper which is then scanned and rasterised on photoshop. It is then laid out twice, one time slightly smaller than the other to create a moiré, which together with another background raster produces this illusion of depth.
Editorial project based on Florentine Renaissance architect and theorist Filarete’s description of the Ideal City (c. 1465).
The headlines are reinterpreted as a Renaissance Tabloid, diverting its proposals into click-bait and provocative titles and subtitles, in the manner of contemporary tabloids. The base texts of the articles are left as they are.
This results in strong contrasts in the layout; whether in the size of the fonts, the white on black chosen for large texts, or by the choice of fonts.

Visual identity for a Mineral Museum in the valley of Binz, canton of Valais (CH).
As is the case in numerous other Swiss cantons, Valais is bilingual (in german and french). This problem structures the entire identity, with all the textual content being placed in the two languages on every different media. The symmetry created by this layout is matched with graphics representing the minerals for each exhibitions.

Wer Mich Kennt Liebt Mich
Editorial design in homage to the posters of the city of Lucerne.
Based on the publication Poster Town (Spector Books, 2017), the aim of the project is to provide a context for the posters shown in the book by presenting the most poster-friendly locations in the city.
Each place is represented on both side of a double-page spread, with the front side being a description of the place and the back side a symbolic impression.
The double pages are then assembled in such a way to create a contradiction in reading.
The title is taken from a sign by the Lucerne street artist Emil Manser (1951 - 2004).

Réduit is a display type design project formally inspired by the Swiss National Redoubt.
Led by General Henri Guisan, the Swiss National Redoubt was a major defensive program during the WWII. The strategy included notably the construction of camouflaged fortifications in the mountains.
The font, which is freely inspired to the shapes of the fortifications, is modular: each letters have two versions, drawn on two different baselines. This allows the user to vary the baseline of each letter, which creates a dynamic and personalized feel to the text.
As part of the Eracom 2018 Open Days, 36 stamps of the typeface were realised.
This font is now exclusively used for Reform, a streetwear brand that I founded with my friend Benjamin Lachavanne as part of my diploma project in June 2019.
Mentoring by Raphaël Verona as part of a Type Design module in 2017 pursued until 2019 for my Diploma Project (ERACOM)
As part of my 2019 diploma mock exams, we were asked to design an identity for an invented architecture and urbanism biennal in Lausanne
Inspired by the grid on architectural plans, I set a layout grid wich was formerly apparent. I then drew the "S" logo based on the grid, which is also used as a support for the images.
