Stefan G. Bucher is the creative director of 344 Books.
[Shte‑fawn Boo‑ker. The G is silent.]

Originally from Germany, Stefan came to California to study at Art Center College of Design. He first became aware of book design pouring over the catalogs of the Wilhelm Busch Museum in Hannover as a child. This early exposure inspired a lifelong quest to design and produce books that fascinate and delight their audience as those early catalogs fascinated and delighted him.

Bucher's work has been recognized with a prestigious Yellow Pencil award for book design by British Design & Art Direction, and by the Art Directors Club of New York. His book designs have been part of numerous design exhibitions hosted by the American Institute of Graphic Arts, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum among many others. His work has been featured in dozens of design books and magazines.
