Nasthasya Reuter – In search of the Tatzelwurm

Diploma project with Ian Party, Nicole Udry

A massive reptilian body, about 80 cm long, two single forelegs, a large neck and a  thick tail. Here is the description made of the Tatzelwurm. It was provided from several witnesses who confirmed a glance at the animal, in deserted areas of the Swiss mountains. However, until this day no one was able to prove its existence. À La Recherche Du Tatzelwurm explores the trace of the mysterious reptile in an investigation mixing archives and fictional elements. Within this association, I was able to blur the borders between fiction and reality.

Nolan Paparelli – Everett Font Family

Diploma project with Diego Bontognali, Ian Party

Everett is a grotesque font family. It’s a font with a symmetrical structure, an organic drawing and a digital flavour. I worked on typographic details adding a high tension while keeping reading comfort. The goal was to find the right balance between a font that is graphic and fluid. Five different cuts form a coherent family, offering various design solutions ranging from magazine to poster.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

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.

Frederik Mahler-Andersen – RE:STADIA

Diploma project with Diego Bontognali, Ian Party

The stadium is the fusion between architecture and sport, providing a structure to host spectators for various events. While the sport hasn’t changed much over the years, the architecture surrounding the field finds itself in a constant state of flux. RE:STADIA explores the future of the stadium. This catalogue enters into a dialogue between architecture and sport, and aims to compare new concepts of stadium architecture by looking at their context, forms, associations and reactions.

David Scarnà – Total

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.

Joana Francisca Castro Santos – Be Ready – To save a life

Diploma project with Ian Party, Nicole Udry

BE READY is an iPad app that connects the 144 hotline, the ambulances, the SMUR medical emergency service and the hospital where the victim will be brought. The aim of this interface with its simple design is to optimize the time at each phase of the medical emergency, based on an existing protocol in Switzerland. This project allowed me to combine my passions for graphic design and medicine. I was able to participate in rescue missions and also to expand my knowledge in interactive design. My motivation is to use graphic design to help develop another area.

Océan Bussard – NIFFF Feature Presentation

Diploma project with Ian Party, Nicole Udry

NIFFF Feature Presentation is a series of animated posters promoting the NIFFF (Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival). Halfway between a poster and a video, this project reinterprets the codes of fantasy cinema with tools related to graphic design. Horror, gore and the intriguing are the themes covered in this hybrid work between cinema and graphics. This project allowed me to expand my practice of graphic design closer to the work of a film-maker by planning sequences with storyboards, experimenting with video editing – all of that through the prism of graphic design.

Eloïse Rossetti – I Would Definitely Come Back

Diploma project with Ian Party, Nicole Udry

I Would Definitely Come Back is an atlas which collects five extraordinary destinations, all selected from Airbnb. These places with unusual features have been found by applying specific filters to the search such as shampoo , doorman or luxury . This work questions the influence of the Internet on the concepts of tourism, spatiality, travelling, and the perception of all this through virtuality. The atlas is a mix between my imagination and the results from Google. Each location is a collection of images reworked and arranged so as to give the reader the feeling of a visual journey.

Joël Passieux – Rural

Diploma project with Ian Party, Jonas Vögeli

Rural This project is the result of a typographical interpretation of the passion I share with my childhood friends to perpetuate the ancestral traditions of my region : Rural is a modern typeface although strongly inspired by archaic typographic forms. I developed two cuts, regular and display : the first optimized for use in body text, and the second for use in larger sizes. www.joelpassieux.com

Dmitry Bukreev – Varst

Diploma project with Ian Party, Nicole Udry

Varst Having spent the first twenty years of my life in Moscow, I am interested in the relationship between the strong architecture of the 1920’s and the fashion of nowadays. I use the model of Constructivism and update it through the fashion catalogue of an imaginary designer named Varst. Varst is a universe of strict lines and geometric shapes. This catalogue is a combination of 2D graphic shapes – illustrations, collages, typography – which comes alive in volume and takes shape. This project is a work of art direction, styling, and visual experiments.

Denis Roueche – Survita

Diploma project with Angelo Benedetto, Ian Party, Nicole Udry

The end of the world is approaching fast and many will survive. Without preparation, we will not last long though. Don't panic, Survita is here to save your life! This fictitious company offers a survival kit to install in the nature: posts on printed wood panels, hanging from the trees by a system of straps, provide information to the walkers. Based on the principles of Maslow's Pyramid, the advice have been conceived to prepare physiologically, physically and psychologically the survivors to live on their own within a new community.
