Swiss graphic designer Felix Pfäffli, also known as Feixen, knows exactly what he’s doing when it comes to making great posters. Working digitally in brightly coloured vectors he creates incredibly striking custom graphics for a variety of cultural clients. That’s not to say that’s all he’s good at though; having trained at the Lucerne School of Graphic Design he’s got the kind of skills that many people would give their right hand for, from experimental typography to immaculate publication design. So impressive are his talents in fact, that he was appointed to a teaching position only a year after his graduation in 2010.
We’re not ones to have favourites (sometimes we are actually) but Felix’s posters for Lucerne cultural centre Südpol and furniture designer Herman Miller are undoubtedly some of the finest pieces we’ve seen in a good while. Tasty business!
