24sepAll DayJean Jacques SchaffnerBirthday


Event Details

Birthday: 24.09.1954

Birthplace: Basel, Switzerland

Jean Jacques Schaffner understands himself to be an artisan, quite in keeping with the tradition of his teachers Donald Brun, Armin Hofmann, Adrian Frutiger and many more. His tremendously broad education attests to his manifold interests and skills: He did a practical training as a sculptor and attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. Afterwards he studied graphic design; but Schaffner is also – successfully – interested in music: as saxophonist he was the winner of the Swiss Jazz Festival. And while studying graphic design he also attended the Swiss Jazz School in Bern/Switzerland. He continued to pursue his musical talent and furthered his education with Leo Nadelmann to become a television music director and a photographer. Afterwards, study visits followed in Paris, London/Oxford, San Francisco and at the University of Utah/USA. Since 1985 he intermittently has been teaching computer graphic design and organising topical seminars on typography, packaging design and prepress.
