A selection of works by students of Imboden will also go on display in one of the galleries, while two galleries have been dedicated to posters by Imboden.

Melchior Imboden is also scheduled to give a lecture at the ceremony. In addition, an exhibition of early sketches by Momayyez will open in another showcase at the IAF.

Born in Stans, Switzerland, Imboden lives and works in Buochs in Central Switzerland. Imboden began his studies as an interior designer. In 1984 he began studying graphic design at the Art School in Lucerne. During his five-year course of study, he worked for design offices in Italy and Switzerland.
