ABOUT

Bio, Approach, and Curriculum Vitae

Good Design Builds Upon Prioritization.

Gabriele Gutwirth is a German communication designer who specializes in design concept and visual brand 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 includes multidisciplinary design practice such as corporate design, editorial design, and interior and exterior branding, as well as design strategy. Also, her workflow is supplemented by techniques drawn from her experience in the visual arts containing lateral and parallel thinking, analogy building, or change of perspective.

A target-oriented selection of data keeps business ventures uncluttered and administrative expenses manageable, provides responsible interaction with resources, and, simultaneously, facilitates the exploration of advanced solutions and opportunities. Due to these facts, Gutwirth's design approach underlies a focused decision making process in respect of relevance of content which results in a well thought out summary of information presented in a purposeful and logically structured manner. Both conceptually and stylistically, Gutwirth puts great emphasis on a forward-looking and accurate form of visual communication that creates a strong foundation for the expansion of scope of subsequent design applications.​
