From Hand to Heart
Four-color linocut


The handcrafted artwork conveys the natural beauty of the herb microcosm.

What does your design show?

The heart is the root of life, the sun the center of being. One feels encircled by fresh mountain herbs and lush alp meadows.

Which category (Switzerland, Summer, Herbs, Freshness) is your design focused on?

Switzerland, Summer, Herbs

What is the unique idea about your design?

The uniqueness of the design is achieved through use of old linocut techniques. Four color plates were used. The irregularities and overlappings are a welcome effect. Made by hand (guided by the heart), the artwork feels natural, free, unbiased and human.

Is there a special story behind your design?

We were inspired by the ornament craft of 18th century rural Swiss folk art.
