Event description

Description

Dafi Kühne is a Swiss designer who works with analog and digital techniques to produce fresh and unique letterpress-printed posters. Using very different kinds of tools–from a computer to a pantograph–for his compositions, he pushes the boundaries of design. Never afraid of getting his hands dirty in his creative workshop, Dafi Kühne embraces the labor involved in the entire process of creating a poster,from initial idea to finished product. Fusing modern means with the century-old tradition of letterpress, he forms a new vocabulary forhow to communicate through type and form in a truly contemporary way. Not retro, his work is a clever response to the search for new possibilities of graphic expression: true print.

Bio:
Dafi Kühne studied Visual Communication at Zurich University of the Arts in Zurich, Switzerland. Since 2009 he has worked in his studio babyinktwice where he specialized in poster designs and letterpress print production. His mostly typographic posters have been presented in exhibitions in Zurich, Milano, London, New York and been published in international poster, graphic design and typography books and magazines. Kühne also gave talks and taught university workshops in Switzerland, Germany, Italy, United Kingdoms and the USA.
In Fall 2016, his first artist monograph «True Print» has been published by Lars Müller Publishers, Zürich.
