Tobias Rechsteiner

Type + Design + Business


I am a creative at the intersection of type/graphic design, code, and business. This means that I design typefaces (GT Haptik with Reto Moser and GT Zirkon) and design graphic identities. With an additional background in business, I advise clients in digital projects and keep an eye on key figures.

Currently, I am Studio Manager at Grilli Type and in this role responsible for Business Development, Project Management, and Marketing.

I studied visual communication at the University of the Arts in Bern, worked at a branding agency in Zurich and was freelancing for several design studios and agencies. At the moment I am doing a Master of Business Administration MBA at the Steinbeis School of Management and Innovation in Berlin.

Together with Daniel Eytan Schneider, I founded, a digital design studio in Basel, Switzerland. We mainly create online identities and websites and help our clients fight their way through the digital noise

I teach typography and digital media at the Schule für Gestaltung Bern and Biel SfGBB, and have given workshops and talks internationally.

You can find me either in Berlin, Basel or Bern.
