"Claude Kuhn, swiss graphic designer born 1948 in Bern, started out as a humble shop window decorator, but then rose through the graphic design schools and academies of Bern, Stuttgart and Zuerich. He works freelance since 1972, and was an art director and exhibition designer for the Museum of Natural History in Bern, Switzerland. In a special, although narrow field, he has done something to poster design that few of his peers can claim: Completely leaving the beaten paths, he changed one type of poster radically: Claude Kuhn has done to boxing posters what Henryk Tomaszewski and his students did to movie posters, elevating a rather drab kind of visual communication to an interesting and lively art form. His revolution was appreciated by both the boxing world and the advertising community: The posters are frequently among the "Best Swiss Posters of the Year", but he also received the Swiss Sports Award in 1992 for his boxing posters, a rather unique distinction for a graphic designer." -René Wanner-
