Career

Since 2010 I work as a Graphic Designer. First within Companies and Agencies and in 2012 I started my own business as a Graphic Designer with diefarben.com

Honestly, I had a lot of different jobs in my life, you can read the resume below, but this made me flexible. All the change helped me to evolve and not to stay stuck. Not for all money in the world! So I had to find my way through it, to become what I am today. I love the Swiss mountain where I am originating from. I speak German, Englisch and Spanisch and If you want so a little bit French, but don’t overrate me.

2014 – today | PermaTree Organisation

Owner, Founder
–> www.permatree.org

The vision in a nutshell is, to live a sustainable life in harmony with nature as self-sufficient as possible. With permaculture as a practical tool for self-supporting ecosystems to build and to promote biodiversity. To understand the processes of nature and to act upon them. A community where you can come, share, learn and be inspired for a better sustainable life. We set impulses for future generations by researching and implementing sustainable lifestyles. With the Global Revolution, in which we stand today, self-sustainable lifestyle has become a growing interest for us. We figured that if we can supply ourselves with what we need to live, then we not only know exactly where and how “things” come from but are also more aware of what it takes to do so.

For a student research project on sustainable catering at ETH Zurich we needed information material (logos, product labels and information material) that would be perceived by customers as part of a much larger campaign based on a limited budget and within a short timeframe. Btina did such a convincing design- and layout work for the “climate-friendly choice”-campaign that we decided to collaborate with her again on the next campaign “liebe Dein Essen – restlos”. Btina exceeded our expectations also for this second assignment and we would be delighted to collaborate with her again, anytime!
