Bio, Philosophy, and Curriculum Vitae
It’s Essential To Know Both The Details and How To Manage Them.
Gabriele Gutwirth is a German communication designer who specializes in design concept and brand identity development. She studied at the Miami International University of Art & Design, USA (MFA, Visual Arts) and at the University of Applied Sciences Augsburg, Germany (Dipl.-Designer FH/BA, Communication Design).
Gutwirth’s skill set synchronizes multidisciplinary design practice such as corporate design, editorial design, and interior and exterior branding with strategic design components. In her process, she also combines a linear workflow with techniques drawn from her experience in the visual arts that include lateral and parallel thinking, analogy building, as well as change of perspective.
A steadily increasing quantity of media requires a purposeful selection of data and structured content presentation to keep administrative expenses manageable. Both stylistically and conceptually, Gutwirth’s work approach puts emphasis on a forward-looking and accurate form of visual communication and counters the trend towards complex sensory stimulation by conclusively summarized information.
Good design builds upon prioritization.
