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

Apart of that, I like to study, address and question urban settings and phenomenons with ethnographic methods and visual research. These projects often result in editorial formats offering room for protagonists voices and by doing so, strive to faciliate discourses and new meaning. At the moment I am finishing my thesis on the design of mansions in Romania built for representation of status – an beforehand, how I find, exotisized and all too Roma-ethnicity related topic, more on it here.

Feel free to contact me via email for any enquiries and collaborations.
