Who I am

I’m Gabriela Namie, a designer and art director based in Brooklyn, New York. I’ve spent the last 10 years harnessing systematic creative thinking to craft visuals to help brands come to life. 



What I do

I currently work at Google as YouTube Music’s art director. I am both a hands-on designer and a visual advisor, helping guide the creative direction for multiple projects and YouTube Music’s branding. I work cross-functionally to expand the product’s and artists’ voices.


What I did

After studying graphic and type design︎︎︎, I worked on branding in multiple environments from small studios to large agencies. When I decided to freelance, that naturally evolved into co-founding Studio Barca ︎︎︎. After some years leading the studio, I moved to New York to work as a Senior Designer at Sagmeister & Walsh︎︎︎
