    Sabina Oberholzer, Switzerland (1997)

    Sabina Oberholzer studied with Livio Bernasconi, Sergio Libiszewsky and Bruno Monguzzi at the CSIA
    in Lugano. 
    In 1983 Sabina founded the Studio di Progettazione Grafica with her partner Renato Tagli in Cevio, 
    in the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland. 
    Oberholzer and Tagli are alive to the relationship between nature and creativity, 
    and sensitive to their responsibilities within the small community in which they live and work. 
    Driven not by economics but rather by a belief in quality and clarity of the message, 
    Oberholzer’s design philosophy is based on appropriateness and generally results in the elimination 
    of the superfluous, ornate or artificial.
