A studio dedicated to the essential

Automatico Studio is an indipendent Swiss based design consultancy, working internationally from more than 10 years. Automatico applies a conceptual methodology to the design of: visual identities, wayfinding, editorial design and exhibition design, with a rich expertise in the fields of architecture, product design, modern and contemporary art. The solutions and output are always clear, sharp and distinct. The studio has been established in 2007 by Demian Conrad, who is AGI member and teacher at HEAD-Genève (University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Geneva).

Some of our long-term collaborations include campaigns for EPFL (Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology), exhibition design for Grand Palais de Paris, editorial design for Espazium publishing, visual identity for Art Basel and corporate design for Zarattini Bank.

Emptiness, lightness, proportion are an intrinsic part of the studio’s visual language. Automatico safeguards the elegant and essential, believing that less can be more. The studio achieves beauty through a functional and honest approach. Geometric truths and mastery of swiss typography are employed to achieve a simple but poetic solution. The studio is always in the quest of the sublime.
