Valérie Hug: How do you prepare a project?
Lea Hofer: I first read a lot about the topic. Everyday observations and looking for fields of tension also helps me find ideas. Then I try to transpose these impressions using various design methods.

Do you have a dream profession?
No, not specifically. But I could imagine working in fashion. I’m interested in almost everything to do with exhibitions, costume design, and staging worlds, whether in the theatre or in a completely different field, for instance, social media curating.

Valérie Hug ( is studying Cultural Publishing at ZHdK and was a communications intern at ZHdK.
