Alumni Stories | Tales From the swissnex Network
About the project
With the alumni stories project, we’re celebrating what makes the swissnex network special – our people! Throughout the years, we’ve seen an incredible variety of talented colleagues step through our doors in Boston and New York, many of whom go on to create their own companies or lead aspiring projects.
To highlight this diverse network, we’ve selected five unique alumni to share their very personal tales and invited Swiss graphic designer and illustrator Christina Baeriswyl to visualize their journeys.
We hope you’ll enjoy exploring some of the eclectic stories of those who are part of our global network of innovators and have made swissnex Boston what it is today. And for fellow alumni, share your own journey on LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter with #swissnexalumni.

About the Artist
The “Illustrateuse” Christina Baeriswyl resides and creates in Zurich. Before she decided to become self-employed, she studied Visual Communications and worked as Art Directrice in various ad agencies.
Her work manifests a poignant testimony, nested in dreamlike scenes. Christina describes her style as reduced, almost minimal, so as to aim the spotlight at the underlying conceptual idea of her illustrations.
Christina’s work has been featured in a broad range of publications, including: NZZ, NZZ Folio, WOZ, Annabelle, deVolkskrant, Surprise, Beobachter, Sonntagsblick, Migros Mag, Hochparterre, Migros, Coop Naturaplan, UBS, H&M and many more.
Her work has been recognized at the 3×3 awards, Society of Illustrators and Creative Quarterly.
