Starting at


San Franswissco

As an immigrant, I'm constantly bouncing between my heritage — from my home country of Switzerland — and the culture of new home, the San Francisco Bay Area. Having spent just about half of my life here and half of it there, this is my humble attempt to visually represent this "San Franswissco" of mine, using traditional Swiss paper cutting and some icons from San Francisco, the Bay Area and California.

I’m a Swiss-American Art Director and Graphic Designer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Established in 2005, l’atelier starno is my award winning graphic design studio where I create high quality print and digital design for companies of all sizes, clients of all backgrounds, for and not-for-profit. Prior to this I was the Creative Director of RedHerring and Art Director at Business 2.0 Magazine. My work has been published in design books, including Logotype & Letterhead by Graphis, Social and Political Protest Posters by Graphis, Understanding the World: The Atlas of Infographics by Taschen, DataFlow 2, Visual Language for Designers, and User-Friendly Diagrams. I also mastermind information graphics found in Time Magazine, Fortune, Business Week, Wired, Inc., Fast Company, Scientific American, and Men’s Health, to name a few.
