Demian Conrad is a Swiss designer, researcher, educator and artist. He established its own independent studio Automatico in 2007 working mainly for visual identities, editorial design, wayfinding and signage.
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.
He has worked for clients such as Le Grand Palais de Paris, Art Basel, EFPL, Mudac (Museum of Design in Lausanne), MCBA (Museum of fine Art in Lausanne), ProHelvetia, EFPL among others.
Demian won many awards such as Art Director Club in 2017, First Prize at European in 2013, 100 Beste Plakate in ’08, ’09, ’11, ’17 and several Nominations at German Design Awards among others.
He studied Visual Communication at SUPSI Lugano and since 2015 he is teaching editorial design at HEAD-Genève, where he also co-founded the experimental laboratory Center for Future Publishing.
He’s currently leading a research project on the topic of “creative coding” and he is running a series of instagram lives on the topic of “simplicity”.
