Aurélien Farina is a French-Swiss graphic designer, primarily active in the fields of editorial and print design. His work focuses on interaction and playfulness as general design notions, using simple tools and processes and considering all graphic design creations as graphic objects. His works are often based on a modular, evolutionary, and user-oriented approach, in which the viewer/reader plays as important a role as the designer himself; whether using typography, shapes, images or materiality, the design is meant not to impose strict and static forms, but rather to propose open and dynamic setups, scenarios, possibilities.
Aurélien Farina studied at Sciences-Po Paris, from which he graduated with a master's degree in cultural management, before studying graphic design at the HEAD-Geneva, where he taught typography and editorial design from 2012 to 2015. He founded the Paper! Tiger! studio in 2011, and has collaborated with a number of other designers and artists on graphic design projects and small-press publishing. Since 2014, Paper! Tiger! is based in a street-level shop in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris, open to co-workers, friends, and visitors alike.
