I was born in Lengnau, Canton of Aargau in 1964 and have lived in Zurich since 1984. From 1985 to 1999, I studied graphic design at the School of Art and Design Zurich (today’s Zurich University of the Arts). I have worked as an independent graphic designer since 1991, and as a lecturer and author since 2003. From 2011 to 2015, I served as head of the MA in Communication Design at Bern University of the Arts. I am currently teaching at the Department of Design & Art, Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
