My contribution for the 5th Soirée Graphique (by Komet) at the Kunsthalle Bern. Interpretations of the Poster were made by Sebastien Agnetti (Paris), Beat Brogle (Berlin) and Samuli Blatter (Luzern)

The inspiration for this Poster came from the rather intriguing story behind the Song from the 1937 animated Film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” by Walt Disney. “Whistle While You Work” is basically the first American Film to have a soundtrack album. Since Disney did not have its own music publishing company at this time, the publishing rights for the music and songs were administered through the Bourne Co., which continues to hold these rights. The soundtrack was released in conjunction with the feature film.

Each letter is hand drawn, no repetitions.

Some of my work & collaboration work with Anna Haas are shown in the new Die Gestalten Book "Regular" Graphic Design Today. With a preface by François Rappo, graphic deisgner, typographer and the head of the Graphic design Department at ECAL.

Graphic design is in constant flux. In recent years, the digitalisation of media and the return of materials and personal identity have strongly influenced the development of graphic design and its adjoining disciplines. This evolution has prompted designers to define new rules and aesthetics paving the way for future media.
Regular documents the current state of graphic design and presents a new generation of creative excellence. The book features examples of progressive manifestations in the printed form from poster design, book and magazine editorial design to typography. This expansive volume provides an in depth look at the state-of-the-art of contemporary graphic design.
