Dafi Kühne is a Swiss designer who works with analog and digital techniques to produce fresh and unique letterpress-printed posters. By using different kinds of instruments – from hand cut linoleum, traditional plastic poster type, pantograph cut new wood type and traditional metal type – for his HELSINKI composition, he pushes the boundaries of design. Never afraid of getting his hands dirty in his creative workshop, Dafi Kühne embraces the labor involved in the entire process of creating a poster from initial idea to finished product.
