Stefan Seifert, graduated visual communication designer and typographic artist, learned the basics in fine book printing and design in the nineties at the famous Stamperia Valdonega where he managed the VAL (Valdonega Aesthetic Line) project.
About this time he met Luca Stoppini, Vogue Italy’s legendary art director and created several exclusive typefaces for Condé Nast.
Among his graphic design projects stand out Trussardi’s corporate design, an award winning Fendi logo design as well as several typographic directions for prestigious ad campaigns led by major Italian publicity agencies.
Returning to Germany he signed responsible for magazine directions and established a small but renowned design studio of his own. For several years he took over the art direction for Mercedes-Benz (Berlin).
Stefan Seifert is a founder of Elementi Design creating user experiences and corporate communications. As a creative director and consultant he continues to mix classic Italian influenced style with German effectiveness and a contemporary temperament.
