Gabi began her design career at the age of five, sitting on her Creative Director father’s lap and bossily telling him to move that image over there and make that text bigger. For many years after, she honed her skills in the fine arts, learning how to draw, paint and, more importantly, how to see.
She studied Graphic Design at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. After graduating magna cum laude in 2008, she moved to New York City to work at BorsaWallace, a boutique design studio where she designed for brands such as Clinique, P&G, Gillette and Penguin Books.
In 2010, at 24, Gabi led her own design studio in Manhattan. There she had the privilege of designing for Super Bowl winners, an Olympic gold medalist, and a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
She moved to Atlanta in 2011 and began working as Senior Designer at the American Cancer Society on their Digital Experience team. In 2014, she channeled her love of sports into a new role at Turner as a Sr. Product Designer, designing digital products for March Madness Live, NCAA.com, PGA, Ryder Cup, and Turner's brand new tech start-up, Bleacher Report Live.
In 2018, Gabi became Bleacher Report Live’s Art Director focused on Product Design, where she helped develop the brand’s experience across mobile apps, web, and connected devices.
Later that year, Gabi took on the role of Associate Director of Product Design at T3, an independent agency headquartered in Austin, with a satellite office in Atlanta’s Ponce City Market. There, Gabi helps to shape and lead the Product Design discipline, while working on projects for several clients including a Fortune 500 retailer and a 100-year old greetings company.
During her free time, you can find Gabi and her husband Alex trying to reign in their mischievous dog Barkley, undergoing a major home reno, eating out in Atlanta, doing DIY projects, watching Netflix, or traveling.
