Basil Dénéréaz – Reif

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Nieder, Pauline Saglio

Mention Très bien Through our entertainment media, partnerships and sponsored content are becoming omnipresent. Based on this observation, Reif i s a fictional account of the objectification of a digital influencer. Through different media created with computer generated images, we visualise the change of identity of this character who allocates areas of her body as advertising spaces, generating her metamorphosis from human to object. In order to realise the content for Reif , a process of digital production was set up, adjusting to the standards of avatar creation which affiliates this fiction to the current technical reality.

Leila Farra – Traces

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Leila Farra – Traces

Diploma project with Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Christian Spiess, Maddalena Casadei, Benoît Chastenet de Gery

“Traces” is a collection of paintbrushes made out of rattan and horsehair. The idea behind this research was to experiment with the tools. Movement, the design of the handle and the hair position influenced the result. The first tests on paper led to experiments on fabric, resulting in a series of painted textiles whose patterns stem directly from the brushstrokes. This project enabled me to immerse myself into two ancestral crafts, wickerwork and paintbrush manufacturing, which I was then able to merge to create a collection between art and design.

Marvin Armand – Bibliothèque

GRAPHIC DESIGN

Marvin Armand – Bibliothèque

Diploma project with Gilles Gavillet, Nicole Udry

“Bibliothèque” addresses typographical signs and their use in the perfume industry. This project features an olfactory alphabet of 45 elements. Each represents a scent of the perfume company “L’Eau de Cassis”. At the crossroads of illustration and typography, this alphabet takes us on a journey through the ephemeral nature of smells. Indeed, this notion of time and temporality inspired me to define a protocol to develop the nature of each sign from figuration to abstraction. “Bibliothèque” thus offers a new way of exploring signs and visual identity.

Bruno Jolliet – New York Urban Atlas

Diploma project with Gilles Gavillet, Nicole Udry

“New York Urban Atlas” is a project on the different ways in which urban density is physically transcribed in New York City. The book follows the principle of administrative residential areas by exploring the various neighbourhoods in the form of illustrations. Throughout the chapters the reader is led to explore urban materiality from an analytical angle with environmental factors relating to the illustrations. Map information provides insight into the various neighbourhoods explored in the book.

Alfatih Al Zouabi – BASE

Diploma project by Alfatih Al Zouabi

The image of a garment nowadays has more reach and value in the digital space than the physical one. And as we are embracing multiple personas at an ever-increasing pace, we see ourselves consuming more garments that quickly go to waste. Base is a clothing service offering an alternative economic model and a way to reflect on the nature of garments in the physical and the digital space. What does the physical garment look like when stripped down to its primary functions? And in what contexts can the digital garment be worn?

Identité Visuelle

GRAPHIC DESIGN

Identité Visuelle

Studio project with Jonas Wandeler

The international typographic style, also known as Swiss style, is a trend in graphic design developed in Switzerland in the 1950s by Armin Hofmann and Emil Ruder. It emphasizes simplicity, readability and objectivity, using sans-serif fonts as the main and structuring element of the design. Among the corporate identities and logos emblematic of the international style are American Airlines (1967, Massimo Vignelli) Fiat, (Jean Reiwald and Armin Vogt), or Swissair (1978, Karl Gerstner). (source: wikipedia) One of the effects of this very widespread (and rather rigid) style is that everything ends up looking the same. During the next semester, you will give a brand an identifiable personality, in the figurative sense of the word.

Pierry Jaquillard – Prelude in ACGT, Chr. 1 to 22 and XY

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo

2018: the recent technological advances pledge an eternal conservation of data.  DNA seems to be the new medium for memory. Nevertheless, interpretation and therefore the understanding of this data is crucial. Will we be able to decode it? By giving a new interpretation of this code through music, I seek to discover it. How is it composed? Has it already been composed? This research is materialized by four screens to interact and understand different interpretations of only one code. Between science and music, this project interfaces culture, codes and nature.

Thomas Faucheux – Sockciety

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Cyril Diagne, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo

Uncovering an online socks store, "Sockciety" offers a way of consuming in which personal data issued from social networks are converted into rights or inhibitions to purchase. It is also a reflection on the consequences of the “datatification” of the world, mingled with a system of perverse gamification where all quantified actions become  criteria for evaluation, necessary to the obtention of a uniform.

Tom Zambaz – It’s not quite the Hilton

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Cyril Diagne, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo

It’s not quite the Hilton is a fashion film created for fashion designer Jonathan Ageneau’s diploma collection in which he imagined the hacker community’s changing room. The film refers to the “whistleblower” figure, presenting characters trapped in a blank space experiencing paranoia and boredom at the same time. Through its webcam, the user can interact with the film all along. This prolific collaboration was a great opportunity to design two distinct projects feeding off our exchanges throughout the project.
