Cover photo series 2022

Tomas Fryscak’s colourful illustrations are being used for the magazine’s covers in 2022. Sometimes humorous, sometimes cryptic, but always playful, he leads with a clear line through the themes of his images. Fryscak studied visual communication with a special focus on illustration at Lucerne School of Art and Design. His closeness to the themes of architecture and the city is reflected in many of his works. www.tomas.studio

Design, Art Direction

Every issue of werk, bauen + wohnen is individually designed – like a book. This variety is based on a concept for the issues that appears to be both contemporary and classic and is related to the design history of this periodical. In the current world of magazines this kind of quality is unique. Here our independent partner Elektrosmog, a studio for graphic design in Zurich, is responsible.  Together with Marina Brugger and Natalie Ricker art director Marco Walser has been designing the issues and the visual presence of werk, bauen + wohnen since 2013. Elektrosmog has regularly attracted attention with often surprising designs and high artistic standards and has received numerous awards.
