Brigitte Schuster's portrait

Brigitte Schuster's Biography

I am a graphic designer, specializing in typography and type design, as well as a writer and teacher. I am located in Bern, Switzerland.

For fifteen years – while being employed by graphic design studios and while working as a freelancer – I have been working as a graphic designer in the fields of editorial concepts (i.e. books, magazines, brochures, annual reports), concept development (i.e. corporate identity concepts, communication concepts), and type design (i.e. logo design, lettering, corporate typefaces). Now, I work independently and my focus is on book design.

In 2013, I founded the imprint Brigitte Schuster Éditeur to publish personal publications in an independent way and to feature projects of my interest. Brigitte Schuster Éditeur specializes in high quality books of often limited editions.

In my free-time, you can find me exploring new, local coffeehouses; learning about different cultural backgrounds through conversations with people; touching, smelling and perusing books; or working on manuscripts with pen and ink, much like an ancient scribe.
