Hello Edelman,

My name is Gabe, and I am hoping to become your intermediate designer. I hope you consider me for this position after taking a look through my work and process. I have joined my cover letter with my portfolio to give you a holistic experience of my work and process.[/text_output][/vc_column][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/4″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row no_margin=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/4″][text_output]
[/text_output][/vc_column][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/2″][text_output]I believe that I am a strong visual and critical thinker. For instance, how can the rules of grammar be made visual? How can tense, verbs and nouns work together as a picture? How can I communicate a narrative without words? I think often about the ways communication can be created through visuals alone.[/text_output][/vc_column][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/4″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row no_margin=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/4″][text_output]

Branding is an extension of a culture and identity. This has always been at the fore of my mind as a visual systems thinker. Esthetics and values are inseparable. For instance, in this installation piece, I ask “What are the values of a culture whose visual system uses only basic shapes and primary colour?”[/text_output][/vc_column][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/4″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row no_margin=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/4″][text_output]

I believe that the design of a typeface can be a brand that embodies an organizations, values, history and culture. In these two examples, I explore branding through the creation of bespoke typefaces.[/text_output][/vc_column][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/4″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row no_margin=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/4″][text_output] [/text_output][/vc_column][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/2″ id=”” class=”” style=””][vc_media_grid element_width=”2″ gap=”10″ grid_id=”vc_gid:1523000749285-80f32e03-5244-7″ include=”245,244,243,59,61,63″][/vc_column][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/4″][text_output]
