Pascal "KKADE" Flühmann

born in 1985

 

Kkade is currently residing in Bern, Switzerland. His first work was created in 1999. After his educational training and working in various jobs to gather experience, he became a freelancer Graphic Designer and Artist in 2011.

KKADE’s works combine a variety of key influences: Swiss graphic traditions such as the crests on the buildings of his city, art deco ornamentation or contemporary insignia from North America, such as those associated with the West Coast tattoo and gang culture. Many diverse companies have appreciated the skilfulness of this combination: KKADE has been asked to design tattoo parlour logos from the States to Australia and enjoys an ongoing collaboration with the Californian gallery, clothing label and art supplies store The Seventh Letter, for which he has designed clothing, exhibited and created a mural in Los Angeles.
