Hannes Pasqualini from Papernoise is responsible for some of the most iconic Eurorack interfaces out there. From Mutable Instruments and Alright Devices all the way to Hexinverter and WMD, Hannes’ brings clarity to complex functionality.

Visual design takes a prominent role in Hannes’ work. In this conversation he is sharing his design and prototyping techniques and even going through the Mutable Instruments visual identity manual (oh, yes!)

Although not mentioned in the conversation, Hannes’ designs more than interfaces. Check out his portfolio for illustrations, motion graphics, visual identities, logos and more.
