Hello, my name is Gabriel Gaba, I’m a graphic designer and art director from Brazil. I have been working in São Paulo at several agencies and design offices over the past seven years. Most of my experience consists of editorial projects, corporate identity and image editing, but I’m a pretty versatile designer and capable of handling many types of projects. I am currently holding a student visa, which allows me to work part-time during 6 months and full-time in the next 6 months. Therefore, I’m available now for a part-time position or as a freelancer. From January on, I can work full-time.
