Hi, nice to meet you in hyperspace! My name is Max and I am a swiss graphic designer. I mostly work in the field of culture, music and art. This is my digital archive.
I’m a graphic designer working in St.Gallen and Basel. Since 2009 I'm self-employed and I love it. Many of my clients come from the field of culture, art and music but I do commercial projects as well. My goal is to contribute additional value to my clients project. I’m not interested in making things just pretty. My work covers a variety of disciplines. I live somewhere between the digital and analogue world. In my opinion those two fields are not contradictory. I love new media, videography and code as much as typography, editorial design, books and posters. Together with Philipp Möckli I’m founder of Konsens Magazin and Studio Début Début.Max Frischknecht Visuelle Kommunikation, Dufourstrasse 99, 9000 St.Gallen, Switzerland, e-mail, Instagram
