My name is Gabriel Santiago, but you can call me Gabe. I'm a Brazilian-Canadian creative living and working in Vancouver, Canada.
Son of an IT nerd and a System Analyst, I grew up surrounded by computer parts and one or two fully working PCs. I spent half of my childhood locked in my bedroom, connected to the internet, downloading music, playing counter-strike, messing around with Photoshop and coding my own IRC script. The other half I spent skateboarding when I should be in school, playing basketball, trespassing abandoned construction sites to try and do some graffiti art and building my own tree-house, many times.
I love the craft, to create, design and build things.
From doing print and graphic design assets as in intern to designing and creating campaigns, websites and interfaces as an Interactive Art Director I’ve been lucky enough to work in the advertising and creative industry for more than seven years now. From small local and traditional shops to bigger agencies networks. All in all to this day I am a passionate, detail-oriented and curious creative always willing to experiment and learn.
