Emphase Sàrl is a graphic design agency based in Lausanne, Switzerland. Since 2010, the two founders Fabienne Kilchör and Sébastien Fasel with their team are developing a wide range of visual communication solutions. For small and large enterprises, as well as public institutions, Emphase is designing among other things books, annual reports, posters, visual identities and infographics. The team is accompanying projects from the conception stage to the publication.

Emphases creative style is rooted in traditional Swiss design but oriented towards contemporary graphic design. Clear-cut lines, accuracy and the reduction of complexites are characteristic for the studio. Emphase is realising projects uncomplicatedly, but not simply, as it is cooperating with its customers.

Since the beginnings, Emphase is interested in the field of information design. By means of infographics, diagrams and charts complex interrelations and Big Data are simplified and mediated. Among the clients are newspapers, federal offices as well as business and science stakeholders. Those images of knowledge have the potential to uncover new knowledge and to create strong memories.

As an innovative graphic design agency, Emphase is defining itself as a scientific design laboratory. For over five years, Emphase is not only initiating and executing customer projects but also cantonal and federal research projects in the fields of communication design and data visualisation. In close cooperation with universities, colleges and project partners theoretical and pratical research on current issues of the visual communication of information is undertaken.

Both Fabienne and Sébastien are lecturers at Geneva University of Art and Design (HEAD) and are regularly organizing workshops at various other Swiss design schools. Since 2015 they are coordinating the Certificate of Advanced Studies programme (CAS) Data Visualization at Bern University of the Arts.

Emphase is based in Lausanne, but active in all of Switzerland and perfectly bilingual. Read Less

Emphase Sàrl is a visual communication agency based in Lausanne. The team develops projects from concept to production. Turned mainly towards editorial, the agency designs printed matters such as books, annual reports, brochures, posters and visual identities. We also create projects in space such as signage systems and scenography.

Emphase Sàrl is specialized in the area of information design. That is the visual processing and development of new visualization methods for the presentation of raw data and providing alternatives to standardized maps or charts. Using data visualization, the attention of readers, customers or employées is increased and helps to understand and absorb new information. The company differs from its competitors by using a very simple and clear informative visual language.

Emphase Sàrl, through Fabienne Kilchör, is working since 2008 with the Berne University of Art in the research field of "Knowledge Visualization" and "Research through Design". The projects include issues of viewing quantitative and qualitative data as well as complex information systems. Part of the research focuses on transdisciplinary practice aligned with business partners, science, government and culture.

Since 2011, Fabienne and Sebastien teach infographics and portfolio design at the Geneva University of Art and Design for the fashion and jewellery design students. Read Less
