Fabian Harb vs Kai Bernau




Fabian Harb is originally from the mountainous Appenzell Ausserrhoden in Switzerland, but currently lives in Basel, where he co-runs the studio. Ever since studying at the Basel School of Design and interning at Claudiabasel and Studio Laurenz Brunner, Fabian has had a love for archives, second-hand book stores, and looking at the past with fresh eyes to propel historical concerns into the present.

Kai Bernau (born 1978) studied graphic design at the University of Applied Sciences Schwäbisch Gmünd in Germany before relocating to the Netherlands, where he graduated with honors from the Design & Typography BA course of the Royal Academy of Arts (KABK) in The Hague in 2005 with his critically acclaimed Neutral Typeface project. He continued at the KABK's Type and Media Master course where he graduated in 2006.

Together with his wife Susana Carvalho, they formed Atelier Carvalho Bernau, a practice that designs printed matter (mainly books), bespoke and retail typefaces, and identity programs.

Kai teaches type design in the Master in Art Direction program at ÉCAL in Lausanne, Switzerland.
