We interviewed Mathis Pfäffli back in 2012 about his design practice and working day. The Swiss-born graphic designer has segued from the playful and considered printed matter that we’re used to and produced a series of large-scale pencil drawings.
Mathis has previously cited making, cutting, sawing and painting as key parts of his creative process; clearly utilised in this series of abstract, non-linear narrative drawings. The series maintains the quality and creative spontaneity of his design work, with an equally effective and entirely new outcome.
