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.

Lou Rais – A Continent to Be Shaped

Diploma project with Gilles Gavillet, Nicole Udry

“A Continent to Be Shaped” is a journey through alternative teaching in architecture. The book is an atlas from the archives of EASA, an alternative school created by students in Liverpool in 1981. Forty years of workshop data from authors across the continent have been systematically edited in a non-chronological journey, revealing the students’ local ideologies and issues. No architecture is shown in order to stimulate the reader’s imagination, the archive is revived and extended with laser-cut silhouettes then modulated into an umpteenth construction. Prix BCV

Niki Paltenghi – CSX369

Diploma project with Gilles Gavillet, Jonathan Hares

“CSX369” features research on the potential of variable fonts in the ASCII technique. A technical quality is identified – that of precise quantification between two instances – and used for colour mixing through typography. Letters are tripled in the same position and each one has a primary colour. Their interspersed variations create secondary, tertiary, etc. hues. The system is implemented with an image processing tool. The research is presented with a specimen and some posters. Prix de l’ECAL

Lucas Haussener – No Face

Diploma project with Gilles Gavillet, Jonathan Hares

Emotions seem to be a simple concept at first glance, but when we try to look more closely at how they work, we soon realise the complexity and subtlety that this very sophisticated form of communication can take. To deal with this subject I decided to focus on facial expressions through the study of masks. Masks are a synthesis and a caricature of emotional archetypes. Moreover, the contexts in which they are used provide leads for research in understanding human reactions to this type of visual message.

Andréa Uldry – Holy Masculinity

Diploma project with Diego Bontognali, Gilles Gavillet

Are boys and men ultimately designed and destined to be strong, fighters, heads of households? This anthology addresses and recontextualises what masculinity is, how it has developed and where it stands today. What if we rethought masculinities, since they are indeed manifold? Through various texts, accounts and self-portraits, we discover a sample group of men from real life, what they think and how they feel about themselves.

Clara Aboulker – Babel, Bαβέλ, لباب ,לבב

Diploma project with Gilles Gavillet, Guy Meldem

In Genesis 11 , it says: “The whole Earth was of one language, and of one speech.”  People decided to build a tower that would reach the heavens. To punish their pride, God destroyed the tower and confused their language. Babel is a multilingual book (four languages: Greek, English, Arabic, Hebrew) that  relates this biblical episode as well as the unfinished search for a unique and perfect language. This book considers translation as a solution to a universal language and proposes  to visualize the text in an architectural way.

Sandi Gazic – Between Myths and Reality

Diploma project with Gilles Gavillet, Nicole Udry

My project reveals how human beings respond to natural dangers. In the past, the  myth of the devil and demons was told to overcome the unknown and the fear. Today, concrete walls and high-tech monitoring have taken over the task of protecting built structures. This project depicts the juxtaposition of myth and reality from the Illgraben catchment area to the Diablerets mountain range and the Aletsch Glacier, which are all located in Valais in the Swiss Alps. All these places have a long history of dealing with natural disasters, such as avalanches, outburst floods caused by glacier melt, debris flows and rockfalls.

Pauline Perret – Nous, Fabrice Gorgerat

Diploma project with Gilles Gavillet, Jonathan Hares

My graduating piece is a graphic transcription of a contemporary play. Nous , a play by Fabrice Gorgerat, was performed for the first time in February 2019.  The play recalls a gun shooting that took place in 2016 at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, and questions everyone’s role in such tragedies. The graphic direction aims to be as close as possible to the message and feelings  that the author wanted to convey. Each scene represents a way of approaching this kind of event: actively, emphatically, passively or neutrally, and is presented in a self-contained object.

To talk about privileges, one inevitably has to consider the implications and intersectionality of existing power structures. From the inner conflict of being shaped by a society that perpetuates your inferiority, to the empowerment of recognizing strength in differences, each statement comes with the baggage of having certain experiences, and the context of “who says it”.The aim of this work is to use graphic design and language as tools in attempting to grasp the intangible in everyday situations and to create room for discussion in the work itself as well as in its ongoing inquiry.

(Pierre Lévy) This project explores the unfinished Sicilian, these architectures of public order having never functioned. It tries to locate, to grasp the temporal state of these places. The book oscillates between elevation and shock, construction and decomposition. Between the ruin, which incites to remember and the construction site to imagine, what projection can we have, today, of these urban objects?

Diploma project with Diego Bontognali, Gilles Gavillet

The Diccionario Lukumí-Español is a major editorial work on the lukumí language that has emerged in the Yoruba community of Cuba. This dictionary presents itself as a practical answer to the problem of knowledge’s transmission on an island where communism and clandestinity still reign supreme.  Through the complex and protean iconography of the Santería, I was able to address the issues related to the notion of auctoriality in contents' creation. This work allowed me to familiarize myself with the fieldwork, its possibilities and its limits.

The visual and conceptual structure of the book is designed analogically with the central principle of quantum physics which represents the law of fate. Each model contains a unique sequence of images, layouts and illustrations due to the algorithm scripting, hence every book is non-identical.

Diploma project with Gilles Gavillet, Nicole Udry

AKIRA is a lettering inspired by the japanese tuning. It uses shapes inspired by curves from tuned cars, ornaments, stickers and inspires motion. It’s a versatile lettering, with multiple possible variations for the same letter. The result of this research is a newspaper that uses grids taken from japanese dailies and mangas. These construction systems gave me the possibility to show off its modularity and to create strong black and white contrasts. This lettering aims to symbolize the movement or to be used as one alone, like a visual language.

«A psychedelic experience is a journey to new realms of consciousness. The scope and content of the experience is limitless, but its characteristic features are the transcendence of verbal concepts, of space-time dimensions, and of the ego. Such experiences of enlarged consciousness can occur in a variety of ways: sensory deprivation, yoga exercises, disciplined meditation, religious or aesthetic ecstasies, or spontaneously. Most recently they have become available to anyone through the ingestion of psychedelic drugs such as LSD, psilocybin, mescaline, DMT, …» –Timothy Leary, 1964

Clément Gicquel – Finders Keepers Leaders

Diploma project with Diego Bontognali, Gilles Gavillet

Finders Keepers Leaders is about a contemporary controversy over the privatization of space resources, based on the opposition of two major legal texts. While one is at the origin of the complete pacification of space, for precisely 50 years, the other suggest a free appropriation of space resources by private company, initiating a global rush to the space resources. Decided unilaterally under the guidance of progress, this document raises political, ecological and geopolitical issues threatening a fragile global balance.

Amaury Hamon – Grandmaster Mind

Diploma project with Diego Bontognali, Gilles Gavillet

Fascinated by the age of externalization of memory we live in, I inquired about its antagonist: the Art of Memory. Grandmaster Mind is an initiatory journey through mnemonic techniques. From beginner to Grandmaster, the book travels through the re-encoding of mundane datas (lists, numbers…) into memorable visual narratives.  The design is built on the duality between data and its mental projection. The digital aesthetic acts as a personal database of pre-existing memories and knowledge—a key to visualize to-be-remembered informations.

Studio project with Gilles Gavillet, Jonathan Hares, Aurèle Sack

27.03.1977 ((1706:50))  aims to analyse forty years later, the different factors which led to the deadliest accident in aviation history—the Tenerife Airport Disaster—which occured in Los Rodeos Airport, in March 27, 1977 in the Canary Islands, in Spain. Gathering official and documentary sources of references, it is a visualization of the interferences, present under multiple sorts: temporal, visual, behavioral and audio. We wish by this book not only to investigate factors of danger in aeronautics, but also to shape a better future for Aviation Security and Air Traffic Control.

Diploma project with Gilles Gavillet, Nicole Udry

The visual identity for the Swiss Museum of Games, the unique museum of board  games in Europe. While creating a visual identity, my goal was to design an instantly recognizable, colorful and contemporary style, that reflects its personality. Inspired by gameplay experience and wonderful atmosphere of playing process I started creating a typography based on combinations of geometric shapes and colors. Due to this project, I could experiment and discover new typographical forms and create a tool "Alphabet". This tool allowed me to create a graphical language and communication.

Diploma project with Gilles Gavillet, Nicole Udry

In this painting, we can count no less than eight boner sex members,  one of the character, entirely naked like the others, is dealing simultaneously with two men and one animal. Indeed, this character, down on his knee is not only sodomizing the animal but he is also grabbing the animal sex member in erection. Furthermore, the lower back character, or even its bump, is being caressed by another man, which in turn has his member in erection held by another one towards the first one’s mouth. As for the sodomized animal, its tongue is directed towards the bump of another man, who also have his sex in erection. Even the animals’ tongues shapes and representations evoke more the sex member in erection than actual tongues.

Diploma project with Ludovic Balland, Gilles Gavillet

As part of an attempt to unify Bosnia, NATO decided in 1998 to change the licence plates indicating the region into an anonymous combination of letters and numbers. The system was undermined by drivers proud of their ethnicity, who found ways of accessorising their cars with stickers and other insignia. On our journey through Bosnia we collected videos, photography and archive material to document the development of the different identities. This book is a documentation and research into how people responded to the western attempt to unify the diversity within Bosnia.

Tancrède Ottiger – Scottish

Diploma project with Gilles Gavillet, Ian Party

My graduation project is a typographical interpretation resulting from my interest in typography as much in its historical forms as in its modern aesthetics. Scottish is a character built on the classic models from the Renaissance era but with a radical language. The family is composed of 3 different but complementary cuts: light , regular & bold , and their corresponding italics. The challenge of this design was to conciliate a baroque structure which includes various calligraphic angles with the stability of a simple digital look.

Diploma project with Gilles Gavillet, Ian Party

For my diploma, I have worked on a font family of six modular monotype typefaces. The family includes three styles (square based, condensed and extended) which all have two contrasts (classical and reverse). Intrigued by the monotype specificities, I have set myself drawing constraints to amplify them and create letters on a perfectly joinable sub-base. The typeface specimen highlights the many possibilities of associations or combinations offered by the font family.

Diploma project with Ludovic Balland, Gilles Gavillet

The absurd articles that give me my inspiration for this publication come from the newspaper Blick am Abend . A visual odyssey through the world’s perpetual absurdity. At the same time, an image of our modern society emerges. Newspapers no longer serve solely to convey information, but also to give the reader a certain type of entertainment. And so it comes about that we are confronted with a load of rubbish every day. The diary helps me to digest and process this trash. As with the daily news, I had to produce on a daily basis. This is also about the working process, and work experience. Fun factor 100%.

This report shows the current power and the potential of these colossal constructions, which are perfectly integrated in their environment. Nowadays, the dams are very present in the media as concessions are expiring. In the future, they will play an important role as Switzerland’s foremost renewable energy source.

Diploma project with Diego Bontognali, Gilles Gavillet

This book is a lexicon of untranslatable Korean words that are related to my origins. Untranslatability happens when it is hard to find a one-to-one equivalence from the source language to the target language. In an effort to get closer to those meanings, I visualize the concepts through archive photographs. The reader can look at each word individually, whereas the book as a whole reveals Korean culture through the history of my family. This collection of 100 words was organized in Korean alphabetical order and came from associations, memories and introspection.

Their popularity has allowed me to come up with a different visual language than what they are usually associated with. I wanted to showcase how interesting they are, not by showing them as we are used to seeing them, but by isolating/enhancing their characteristic elements. These very different monuments let us travel through different ages and explore a large panel of forms. One visit, 15 monuments, 500 elements, are what my edition is composed of, creating an architectural journey through which the reader can be transported into the past and back.

Charlotte Hauser – Extra Omnes

Diploma project with Gilles Gavillet, Nicole Udry

Extra Omnes I worked around the Conclave, the moment when the new Pope is elected. More than the religious symbols, I was interested in the media coverage of this event. Once the doors of the Sistine Chapel close, there is nothing to do but wait. Still, about 5000 journalists were in the Vatican, sent there for an extensive live coverage. While waiting for the famous white smoke, they had to generate a steady flow of information, they had to fill the blank. I chose to show this mass of information, collecting articles, tweets, and transcriptions of TV and radio broadcasts, produced only during the 26 hours of the Conclave. By organizing them in a loose chronological order, I wanted to see how these bits of information evolve within minutes, how they repeat themselves, and how they comment on each other. The images, descriptive or distorted, evoke the heavy atmosphere of the event and a feeling of vertigo. At once solemn and ordinary, the book plays on subtle contrasts and becomes a metaphor of white noise.

Stereo My project is called Stereo. It’s a publishing that regroups all kinds of musical samples used by hip-hop artists, from styles such as : blues, r’n’b, soul, funk, rock, old school hip-hop. Stereo proposes a reading experience that highlights the sampled artists in hip-hop, while the not so often sampled artists are also presented on a graduated list. To keep this idea of « sampling », the images, often used for iconic and information purposes, illustrate the lists of samples and are composed with the artists’s vinyl covers, cut and rearranged to create new images. The publishing also includes a part explaining the meaning of sampling, its rules and misuse (court cases, plagiarism, etc).

Pistes noires This project retraces the development of a world renowned ski resort and follows the taming of a portion of the Swiss Alps. Success arrived in the ‘50s and an idyllic image built around the resort of Verbier. But this situation was quickly confronted with all the dangers of the environment (accidents, collisions and avalanches). The question of responsibility set forth an array of rules to regulate the use of this still obstinate environment. This work taught me to work with a subject that is not only overflowing with good materials, but one I’ve been passionate about. Prix Bonnard & Gardel 2013

Diploma project with Ludovic Balland, Gilles Gavillet

Warming by the Devil’s Fire recounts the life of Robert Johnson. Considered today as one of the fathers of early Blues Music, he died in fact anonymously in 1938 at the age of 27 and fell into oblivion. It was only during the 60’s that white folk and rock musicians rediscovered his 2 albums and started being interested in his life. In 30 years though, his story had been told so many times and in so many different ways that it had turned into a tale. Theories, white fascination and romantic visions completed the myth, to which – as a European fan – I decided to contribute by telling my own version.
