Designer, illustrator and founder of possibility: Astrid Mueller
About the Designer
Born in Switzerland, the land of Vitra chairs, famous type foundries, and the best chocolate in the world, Astrid Mueller, the creator of possibility, has a passion for design (and dessert)!
Astrid’s creative journey began at Swarovski with a position in graphic design. Although she didn’t know it at the time, it was there that she glimpsed her future when she created a series of crystal tattoo jewelry pieces that were sold worldwide. Eager to perfect her craft, Astrid bid Swarovski a fond farewell, packed her bags and set out to take graphic design classes in Zurich, Hamburg, London, and, finally, New York, where she studied at Parsons. In 2005, Astrid launched her own design business and has been illustrating and designing for the fashion industry and feminine audiences ever since.
In 2011, she relocated to an island off the coast of Alaska to be with her sweetheart and follow her dream of possibility. Astrid’s bold leap towards her passion quickly led to success as she was named one of five emerging designers at Phoenix Fashion Week, and her pieces were included on the runway at Los Angeles Fashion Week and are regularly spotted in editorials.
Whenever she can, Astrid travels home to Switzerland, stopping along the way in cities such as New York, Seattle and Los Angeles for inspiration as well as to indulge in her taste for cozy hotel rooms, transparent rings and clever design.
