LORAINE FURTER

Loraine Furter is a graphic designer, researcher and curator, currently coordinator of the Fernand Baudin Prize – Prize for the Most Beautiful Books in Brussels and Wallonia.

Originally from Switzerland, she is based in Brussels since 2007.

Her practice is situated at the crossroads of art, design and editing/curating.

Specialised in editorial and publishing practices, she designs and edits paper publications as well as web and digital ones, and is particularly interested in the interaction between these mediums.

Early on, the connection between theory and practice became evident in her work, as well as a strong interest in transversal, cross and multi-disciplinary approaches. Research is now entirely part of her work, which combines hybrid, written and visual productions.

Loraine is also teaching and frequently gives graphic design and book workshops, in Switzerland (Eracom, Lausanne), Belgium (Sint-Lukas Brussels and Antwerpen) and France (Chaumont).
