Michael Kunz


He studied graphic design in Lucerne and living and working there since then. Presently working as Art Director for Christen visuelle Kommunikation, Studio Flex and Festival am Bach in the areas of innovation, creation, conception and strategy.

«He lives off new impulses with the curiosity of a toddler. This passionate, ambitious and creative attitude flows into his work. As a conceptualiser and designer, he explores the boundaries and searches for innovative solutions. He finds balance in boxing, bouldering and calisthenics and being with his family and friends. He loves art and culture, travelling, festivals, reading and documentary marathons.»
