I’m a graphic designer based in Zurich, working in the fields of editorial design, art direction and visual identities for both print and digital. Aiming for conceptually concise, typography-driven responses, I realize projects for and with clients from culture, arts and publishing.

I just finished my MA-thesis on the design of private mansions in Romania built for the representation of status – more on it here. Beforehand I have been working with two colleagues of mine on a generative platform for academic publishing – aether.ethz.ch. Feel free to contact me via email for enquiries, collaborations or freelance work.
