Emerging design talent in Banana Campus Lausanne

News | 19 January, 2017

Our partnership with Ligature Connections supports fresh design talent and brings insightful talks and workshops to Banana Campus Lausanne this season.

Ligature Connections partners up with Studio Banana

We are thrilled to announce our association with Ligature, a Switzerland-based online publication for design, culture and visual creation. Founded by Dennis Moya in 2011, it is now directed by designers duo BÄHLER MOYA (Dennis Moya & Tiffany Bähler). The platform promotes Ligature Connections, a series of talks and events on design and creation.

At Studio Banana, we are strong believers in collaboration and entrepreneurship. That is why we have been supporting emerging companies in the creative industry since our very beginnings. We have done so through our Banana Campus initiative, a stimulating work environment boosting inspiration, exchange, conversation, learning and cooperation.

Our Banana Campus in Madrid and Lausanne are home to a community of startups, freelancers and boutique agencies. Here we host frequent events and workshops, and offer working, meeting and prototyping facilities.

A promising season boosting exchange and collaboration

As a result of this association, the first season of Ligature Connections lecture series will take place at the Banana Campus Lausanne. The programme includes insightful talks and workshops by emerging design talents based in Switzerland like:
