If there’s anything that Larissa Kasper and Rosario Florio don’t know about exquisite design and crisp typography then we want to find out what it is. The Swiss duo work together under the moniker of Kasper Florio and produce “quality-conscious and conceptual” design that’s incredibly striking without any reliance on brash colour or garish type. Their understated colour palettes and immaculate type absolutely speak for themselves.
With a practise that focusses predominantly on high-end fashion branding and printed matter for the fine art world it’s unsurprising that Kasper Florio have adopted a sophisticated visual language. But their graphic style is firmly rooted in traditional Swiss principles of design, consistently emphasising cleanliness, readability and objectivity. We’d probably go as far as to say that this is as good as typography gets.
