The letterpress posters of Dafi Kühne are vivid, loud, and definitely atypical of letterpress style. Why would a designer choose to use analog technology to produce posters in the 21st century if not to get that classic look? Join to find out, as Dafi discusses his posters both in the Letterform Archive collection and beyond.

Dafi Kühne

Dafi Kühne is a Swiss designer and letterpress printer. In his studio, he uses a wild mix of analog and digital tools to produce cultural posters. With this one main rule—No PDF ever leaves the studio as a final product— he prints all posters with letterpress printing presses. His mostly typographic letterpress posters have won international awards and been in exhibitions all around the globe.
