Loraine Furter is a Swiss independent graphic designer and researcher, based in Brussels since 2007. Her practice is situated at the crossroads of design, art and editing/curating. Specialised in editorial practices, she is particularly interested in the interaction between traditional forms of publishing and “expanded” ones. Early on, the connection between theory and practice became evident in her work, as well as a strong interest in transversal, cross-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. Since 2013, she is the coordinator of the Fernand Baudin Prize – Prize for the Most Beautiful Books in Brussels and Wallonia.
