The studio’s philosophy can be traced in the roots of “Die gute form” (the good form). Emptiness and space are an intrinsic part of the visual language. Automatico safeguards the elegant and essential, believing that a clever message does not need to be laud. The studio achieves beauty through a functional, honest and conceptual approach. Geometric truths and mastery of swiss typography are employed to achieve a simple but poetic effect. The studio is always in the quest of sublime even in noisy times.
Automatico begins and ends with respect for your audience, believing that a visually educated audience deserves refined and sophisticated narratives. The studio embrace its own independency and is detached from trends or commercial styles. Automatico creates enduring solutions, providing long-term value in both social and cultural arenas.
