Designing histories

Louisa Gagliardi wins the Swiss Design Award for the first time this year, with a selection of projects. While studying at ECAL, the University of Art and Design in her home city of Lausanne, the young graphic designer spent a semester at the prestigious Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and has since produced a variety of graphic pieces, including the projects that earned her the Swiss Design Award.
In her works, which are either self-researched or commissioned, Gagliardi tells stories and anecdotes and recounts events, preferably using the resources of illustrations and editorials. Indeed, digital illustration is very much her forte; the three-dimensionality of objects and spaces, experiments with colour gradients, forms and contours are the elements from which she draws the creativity and expressiveness to narrate her stories. New Stand No. 4, a commission for Mousse magazine, is a prime example. In it, she tells the story of the New Guy whose everyday life is spent partly alone with a glass of wine and partly with friends on the beach. Space as creative surface is also her preoccupation in New Stand No. 3, First Person Shooter, where the view of space is described from the perspective of the protagonist in a video game.
Louisa Gagliardi receives the jury’s vote for her highly expressive, strongly illustrative graphic works, which merge surrealism with realism.
