BlackYard consists of four graphic designers/illustrators in their best age who acquired their abilities through different professional careers. In 2009 they teamed up and settled their business location in the pictoresque part of the small neighbourhood “Matte” in downtown Bern. Their primary area of occupation is illustration and graphic design, executed with much care for detail. BlackYard likes to sketch, draw and ink by hand, before utilising machines to merge together all textures and layers preparing the artwork for the offset- and screenprinting process. Posters, illustrations, logos, cover artwork as well as original art and customized objects have found a broad audience in and outside of Switzerland and applied leverage to BlackYard’s aspiring career.
