Quere Wege
Gamedesign
2023

Playing, sharing and raising awareness

"Quere Wege" is a tribute to the queer community, a reminder of its struggles and achievements. Played in schools, retirement homes or with friends and family, the game celebrates the diversity of queer life and builds bridges between generations. It creates connections, promotes understanding and encourages people to think about queer life paths and grow together. It reminds us that, as different as we may be, we belong together and can learn with and from each other.

In cooperation with queerAltern.

Diplomaustellung ZHdK
Identity Design
2022
Every four years, the design of the diploma exhibition at the ZHdK is renewed. This year we took part in the pitch competition. Our design celebrates the interconnectivity of the various programmes at ZHdK, emphasising the interdisciplinary approach that weaves together different fields of study to create a comprehensive art education. In addition, we used our grid to create a typeface that adapts to different formats, ensuring a flexible and modular design.

Was blüht denn da? – Kalender 2023
Illustration
2022
This calendar is made of handmade recycled paper with a wildflower seed mix. The calendar is illustrated and glued by hand.
Normally a calendar has a lifespan of 365 days - after that it has no use. The calendar is meant to increase environmental awareness through its plant-based, organic life cycle, and create a connection to local biodiversity through the process of burial.
The paper and printing of the calendar were produced by the social enterprise Growing Paper. The paper is produced by a South African social project.
Growing Paper also works with a social enterprise in Bern, which does all the printing and logistics for them. All of their produced prints are "Printed in Switzerland". These orders help to create new jobs for people with disabilities.

Ersatzmasken bauen.
Editorial
2021
At the moment it is difficult to maintain physical contact with the outside world. If you have to go outside despite the Internet and delivery services, a mask is currently an absolute must to protect yourself and your contacts. But what if you last mask has just run out?

I have dealt with this question and created a manual that shows how you can build different emergency masks from everyday objects. The masks are divided into different levels of difficulty and all have certain advantages and disadvantages.

Weltklasse
Animation
2017

For the workshops "Weltklasse" on the occasion of the poster festival "Weltformat" we were able to create a visual for social media and a poster with the goal of attracting as many young designers as possible to the event. The aim was to incorporate the word "Weltklasse" into the film and look for a black and white conversion. Our idea was to run our own workshop for one day to create the letters of the word "world class". In a second step, we mixed the typical analogue workshop character with the digital level. Our video installation from laptops reminds us of light projections.


Workshop Studio Mut
Posterdesign
2017

At the “Weltformta” Poster Festival I attended the Studio Mut Workshop. The task was to think about what would disturb/excite or make you scream. In a second step, this should be designed typographically in short words on the computer, then projected on neon, orange posters and implemented in different ways. This strengthened the effect of the statement.


Blechwüste
Photography
2017
For this project, we spent two days at the Museum of Transport in Lucerne, where we collected material on the subject of "transport". The aim was then to create an analogue newspaper with the photographs and cut-out typography. When I was photographing, I concentrated on the metal sheet and its volume and curvature of cars. I then combined it with other structures of the car. The newspaper represents my opinion that cars are available today in too large a quantity - as a veritable "desert of sheet metal".


Slow  
Posterdesign
2017

This year's theme of APG's annual poster competition in our graphic school was "Deceleration". This theme and the poster should appeal to passers and stimulate them to think. My poster picks up the everyday life in big metropolises as well as small towns. Nowadays, people are too stressed physically and mentally. The city, cut into strips, supposed to represent the disturbed and stressed everyday life and the slow-motion writing acts as an antipole to it - as "deceleration".


Master-Abschlusskonzerte 
Posterdesign
2017

For the Hochschule Musik - Lucerne it was necessary to design a poster for the „Master-Abschlusskonzerte“. The Master Poster is an internal school competition that takes place every year. Our idea was to focus not on a certain music genre, but on music in general. Since music can also be very spacious, we decided to make an analogue, three-dimensional poster.


London Classics 
Editorial
2017

During the two-week study trip to London, each student researched two typical English topics, made pictures and wrote texts. Back in Lucerne, it was the task to develop a concept and create a publication with a total of sixty topics. I divided my book into lexicon pages, essay pages and dialogue pages. This is to give the book a clear structure, but also to provide variety. In addition, I divided the sixty themes into categories and assigned them to a color so that you can navigate through the book even better.


Generated Design
Animation
2016

The aim of this project was to set up rules and thus shape them. In the team we worked out a simple concept for a game, which can be played in pairs or with any number of players. Our rules were simple. A grid served as the basis. Shortly before each game round, we looked at what materials we had available to design, and invented rules based on them that depended on this grid. This resulted in exciting and varied posters. We photographed our work and edited it into a rhythmic, humorous video.
