After kicking off this series in late 2021, we decided to take a step outside the financial industry for our next interview. After all, money and finances concern every single one of us – and we believe when it comes to true wealth, there is wisdom to be found by seeking out those who live their passion to the fullest.
We sat down with Maxime Plescia-Büchi, internationally renowned tattoo artist and creative director for part II of this series.
Born in Lausanne in 1978, Maxime studied psychology at the University of Lausanne and Graphic Design and at ECAL. He then lived in Zurich, Paris, and London where he worked as a graphic designer for studios and magazines such as NORM, North Design, Self Service Magazine, Arena Homme +. Maxime also taught regularly at the ECAL, HEAD (Geneva), and the Basel Fashion School. In 2006 Maxime apprenticed as a tattoo artist under Filip Leu in Lausanne then moved back to London where he founded his studio Sang Bleu London. He currently lives in Los Angeles. He also is the founder of Sang Bleu Tattoo Zurich, Sang Bleu Tattoo LA, Sang Bleu Magazine, Swiss Typefaces, Novembre magazine. Maxime and his type foundry Swiss Typefaces notably designed Logos or fonts for Mugler, Damir Doma, Rick Owens, Balenciaga, Vogue Turkey, Esquire Magazine, Rolls Royce, Sky Television and Android. Maxime has also collaborated as an artist with fashion brands such as McQueen and currently is an official ambassador for the Swiss watch company Hublot.
Thank you so much for taking the time! We look forward to exploring wealth with you.
