Zurich is winter sports, lake and lifestyle.
Zurich is authentic, versatile, cosmopolitan.
Zurich is Circle 4, the Chreis Cheib, where design takes over the strip.
Zurich is young, multicultural, with a turbulent past. And we're in the middle of it.
Beate Maria Reuther
Management/Owner and Recruitment Consultant
Management and Recruitment Consultant
Maya docked in May 2011 and co-founded DESIGNERDOCK Switzerland Ltd with Beate Reuther in October 2012. Starting from scratch, she trained in graphics and design. It was during this time that she discovered a marked interest in corporate publishing and newspaper design. But first things first: It was during an internship at Integral Concept Rudi Bauer in Paris that she developed her taste for typography. At marketing and CI/CD agencies she implemented her designer finesse and became art director, responsible for all design concepts and image campaigns for the tourism sector, including Schweiz Tourismus, Zermatt Tourismus, Palace Hotel St. Moritz and Sils Maria Tourismus. Further AD stations include diverse publishers and publishing agencies, where Maya developed a founded know-how in corporate publishing, editorial design, as well as a penchant for microtypography. Aside from developing annual reports for large companies, and design concepts for well-known magazines (e.g. Persönlich and Du Kulturmagazin), customers, employees and online mags, she has built up and managed several design departments. When she's not designing, she's happily out hunting for vintage designer furniture or seeking out aesthetic input in natural surroundings or in the mountains. She's also a fabulous helpline for colleagues looking for tips about interesting and inspiring art exhibitions.
