Journal / News / Press
The last couple of month I was working on a new smartphone app called Book Cities. First good news: it's now available on the App Store and will get soon it's first update! Second good news: It got already an article in the newspaper Corriere della Sera (Italy) and Monthly Design (Korea)!
I couldn't wish for a better start.
I was invited to give a poster-workshop in Kazan (RUS) along with Sergey Kleshchev (RUS) and Crhistoph Nüssli (CH). We have been invited by SMENA, a fascinating, independent cultural hub. Each year they organize a poster residency to create a greater awareness and understanding for poster-design.
Happy to be part of the lecture series: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Organized by Typoclub, Afterwork Lectures 2016/17, Bern.

Last week I was having an workshop at legendary workshop week at ISBA, Besançon (FR). The image is one of the works in process: A new typeface, used by alien-hackers. Thank you for the invitation Thomas Bizzarri.
I have decided to separate the illustration from this page. Now, all my drawings, images and commissioned illustrations have their own web-site. That new project is called Drawing Room. After 10 years of trying to reconcile my graphic design work and my illustrations, I would like to find out, how those two parts develop independently. I’ll keep you posted!
