"SEEPARK THUN" "Jazz in Willisau"

It's a great honour for me to get an award at the "Typedirection in Japan 1994-95" because I was always enormous impressed by the presented and awarded typographic works in the yearbook of this club. To be beside such great Typedesigners as many of the Japanese are is let me feel very happy. Especially the very large field of Typedesign chosen by the Jury of the Tokyo TDC is very remarkable. Before I studied Graphic Design at the Lucerne Art School, I did my apprenticeship as a classical typesetter. Even today, it's always a 'Must' for me to design one or two 'pure' Typography Posters!
