Dafi Kühne is a Swiss designer who works with analog and digital approaches to produce fresh and unique letterpress-printed posters. By using different kinds of techniques – from hand cut linoleum, and traditional plastic poster type, to pantograph cut new wood type and traditional metal type – for his HELSINKI composition, he pushes the boundaries of contemporary poster 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.

Notebook with custom typeface Suomi Primeval
Katharina Sellier was inspired by the design classics of Finnish designer Eero Aarnio and created a custom typeface that echoes his joyful design spirit. It’s a fun typeface that plays with the bulbous forms and whimsical curves of Aarnio’s revolutionary high-quality plastic furniture.
