Carsten Scholtysik


Carsten Scholtysik is a co-founder and partner in Scholtysik & Partner.

After working at various agencies in Basel, he became a senior designer at Zintzmeyer & Lux (now Interbrand) in Zurich. In 1996, he founded Scholtysik Identity, a Basel-based branding and design agency. Starting with two people, Scholtysik Niederberger Kraft grew to one of the largest branding agencies in Switzerland, with over 35 employees. Carsten left that agency in 2012 to reinvigorate his original vision of “design as a language” and founded Scholtysik & Partner in Zurich together with Denise Delémont and Fabian Sander.
