Francois Berthoud

Francois Berthold was born in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1961 and studied illustration in Lausanne. After receiving his diploma in 1982, he moved to Milan and began working for Conde Nast and for the fumetti comic-strip magazines.
Within a year, he was appointed art director of Vogue Sposa. He later became one of the principal contributors to Vanity magazine, designing nearly all of their covers as well as illustrating editorial features.
He illustrates for many major fashion designers like Mondi, Missoni, Moschino, Krizia, Lacroix, Romeo Gigli, Prada, Vivienne Westwood and many others.
Berthoud claims he is happy to be a commercial artist, preferring the immediate communication with a large public that journalistic reproduction achieves to the solitary admiration of the occasional art-gallery visitor.
