He is best known for his travel posters that beautifully capture the essence of Swiss landscapes and culture. Jungfrau Railway: Opened in the early 20th century, the Jungfrau Railway is a marvel of engineering. It takes passengers up to the Jungfraujoch, often referred to as the "Top of Europe," at an elevation of 3,454 meters (11,332 feet). Main Image: The poster prominently features a dog sled team against the backdrop of the majestic Swiss Alps, highlighting the unique and exciting mode of transportation available to tourists. The dramatic depiction of the snow-covered peaks of the Bernese Oberland serves to emphasize the rugged beauty and allure of the region. Cardinaux uses a palette of cool blues and whites to represent the winter landscape, contrasted with the darker tones of the dog sled team and the warmer colors in the sky, suggesting a clear and inviting winter day. The text is minimal but effectively integrated, usually placed at the bottom of the poster, guiding the viewer's eye from the stunning visual to the information about the Jungfrau Railway.
