About me

Already in my early childhood I was fascinated by beautiful letterings. Since my youth, my vacation photos have rarely shown anything else than old lettering. It was therefore no surprise to those around me at the time that I wanted to become a sign writer.

I did my apprenticeship as a signwriter in the mid-90s in a company where traditional craftsmanship was still very important. We did a lot of gilding, hand painted lettering on house walls, created a large number of signage in silkscreen printing, and calligraphy was also used again and again. However, it was also the time when traditional sign painting gave way more and more to vinyl signage.

In 2005 I became self-employed and had my first sign shop in Wetzikon. In 2009, I moved my sign shop to Winterthur, where I was first in the old town and have now been in Oberwinterthur for a couple of years.

At the beginning of my self-employment, I mainly produced lettering from self-adhesive foils and was able to gain a lot of experience with the use of cutting plotters, digital printers, CNC milling machines etc. over the years. Over time, however, the focus of my work has shifted more and more back to hand-painted, traditional lettering and gilding and has now become my speciality.

The love for lettering and typography is deeply rooted in me. I firmly believe that exceptional handmade lettering can contribute significantly to the success of a business. The human connection in craft can be seen and felt. It attracts us and makes us feel comfortable, which is ultimately the goal of any business.

It is important to me that I can deliver the best possible quality to my customers. In order to constantly refine and improve my knowledge of traditional and modern techniques, I therefore continue to educate myself with the help of specialist books and courses.
