Tancrede Ottiger

About

Swiss based design studio involved in all fields of print and interactive design for cultural institutions, businesses and individuals.

Tancrède Ottiger founded his design practice in 2015. The office is characterized by a collaborative practice with many players in the field of design such as developers, photographers, industrial designers, architects & filmmakers. The studio is covering works in all mediums, from print to digital design : books, publications, identities, web design and scenography.

Type design has been a key element of the design process from the very begining. The studio offers both retail and bespoke typefaces for clients. Recognized magazines such as Frame or Marie Claire used our fonts in their design.

Furthermore, the practice conducts a constant reasearch into production means and new technologies, producing up to date custom tailored solution for each project. The interactive map created for the Ateliers de Renens or the generating identity tool for the Teintureries drama school stands as good examples of this approach.
