Gabriele, Gabi to most of our clients, has been with BadDog Design for twelve years—a brilliant designer; a congenial personality that loves client interaction; and a sharp web developer. Her expertise straddling graphic design and web development is a rare mix that makes the web design process at BadDog Design somewhat unique. Gabi is alert to programming that does not equal good design, an important contribution to any web project.
Her early experience as a designer began in her native Germany gives her a truly international design style. She received a Diploma from the Hamburg Academy for Communication Design & Art Direction and a Master’s degree in Linguistics and Computer Science from the University of Hamburg. While living in Hamburg, she worked in a creative team at Ammirati Puris Lintas (now Lowe and Partners) developing marketing campaigns for print and television for companies including Daimler Chrysler, Continental Tires and Compaq.
