Portrait by Zoë Noble

 

I’m Gabby, small human with a boss surname.

More importantly, an Australian designer and art director living in Berlin. Passionate about design for both print and screen, I work on a diverse range of projects between and beyond these mediums. I have been fortunate to work on a mix of local and global brands at leading design studios during my career, some of which include Jetstar, Qantas, Macquarie Bank, The Australian Chamber Orchestra, Red Bull Music Academy and Ableton.

Some of my work has been recognised by organisations such as AgIdeas, the Design Institute of Australia and the International Society of Typographic Designers. I also once won a trophy for karate, which sounds impressive but is now of no use whatsoever.

I currently spend a lot of my time writing my blog and weekly newsletter, researching for Broads Down Under, travelling to new places and riding my red bicycle about Berlin. If you think we’d be a good match to work together, shoot me an email and let’s chat about your project!
