The Swiss lighting brand RIBAG is well known for its radically stripped-to-the-bone luminaire-designs. Pure, clean and therefore timeless. I was looking for the same approach when asked to conceive a new publication for the brand.
Very happy to announce that I got asked to design the new Logo for "Egon", the award given to people with outstanding achievements in the field of advertising. The physical, three dimensional award trophy consists of a man (Egon) with a megaphone head. For the logo, I played with the outline of the trophy itself and placed the copy text as a shout out to compliment the message.
After designing Amateur I felt like trying something else: designing a font using only one Illustrator brush-setting. JEFF is a font consisting of only uppercase glyphs, numbers and a few special characters.

For Swiss Interior Designer Francesca Alder I created this repeatable Pattern. Designed to be lasered into the wooden surface of the welcome desk of a Hotel in the Swiss Alps. It consists of regional flowers and abstract mountaintops.
Together with 5 other designers and the innovative swiss carpenter company "Strasserthun" I created graphic patterns which were then engraved into wooden surfaces. It's quite a new technology working with laser and enabling the pattern to be engraved in various depts.
I designed my first font and it was a lot of fun! Using the simple yet powerful "Glyphs" app I created a set of upper- and lowercase characters including numbers and special glyphs. So, basically it's ready to use but far from perfect, hence the name "Amateur".
