My name is Maël Bächtold and I am a swiss based graphic designer. I am currently a student in master of type design at écal. In 2018, I received with honors my bachelor of communication design at HEAD - Genève. My bachelor project, was focused on designing a font and also creating an identity to promote that font. I mainly work with type, 3D, and motion and I like to mix those fields together and aim for unexpected and surprising results. Therefore, my work is a combination of experimentations and clarity but also of precision with a particular attention to detail. 
By the way, I also developed a little video game once.
