Christian Etter Leaves the Building

Christian Etter Leaves the Building

Our dear Christian Etter - main blog entry supplier and great friend to all - leaves us today after one glorious year.


What did you do before coming to Fabrica?
Worked as an Art Director in Saatchi & Saatchi in Milano.

And what is the plan now?
I will continue to work on some Fabrica projects (we’re still looking for editors!), but based in Switzerland, for a couple of weeks. Then I will go to work as a Senior Interactive Creative for a nice little company called Unit 9 in London.

What was the best moment here?
The best was the summer break... all of August off. We went with some Fabricanti and some of my friends through Spain and Portugal. I never had such a long holiday break. And also some little moments in Treviso. Like when just Pia, Hansi and I danced the whole night at your place. Only with an iPod with some strange music on it, without shoes to keep the neighbors sleeping. Or when I was with Natalie and Hansi in Paris for sure. And showing my motherland to some Fabricanti over the Christmas break. The trip to Slovenia was amazing too. Such good food. My god, there where so many good moments... it was a great year here.

What did you learn in Fabrica?
I think I improved my English quite a bit. And I stopped smoking. Also, when your colleagues all of a sudden become your flat mates, friends, family and lovers, you can learn a lot about your self... you can't hide anything.

Any last words?
Yes. After working a year in Fabrica... I have to say this place makes less sense than ever. The infrastructure is great - the building, the library, the equipment, so many ridiculously talented people - but the never present management isn't able to create a stable environment to pull anything off. Over all it's an amazing place to meet good people from all over in a similar stage of their lives. And personally... I have never grown as quickly as I have in Fabrica. Therefore, it is a shame the building is half empty. I am happy that some new blood is arriving, but it seems impossible to stop the exodus. In June many will have to leave. I am glad I will not be here then.
To the Fabricanti I want to say again how great you are. You have taught me so much and given me much love! Wherever I am, my door is wide open for you.

I just want to say, that it's been more than a pleasure to spend the past year with Chris. He's not only my partner in blogging but a very good friend and a wonderful presence here in Fabrica. Websites, football, and pseudo-inappropriate conversations will not be so regular without your swiss ways.

Take care Chris.

And by the way everyone, there's a free space available as a Fabricanti blogger!
