Maria Gabriele Design specializes in corporate identity and brand communication including logos, promotional publications, annual reports, websites, environment and trade show displays, brand advertising, retail packaging and direct-mail for clients in both the private and public sectors.

the process

Listen to the client, listen to the client’s public, and listen to what’s missed. Acquiring and evaluating knowledge about your product, company or event is the first step in developing messaging that is correct, clear and impactful.

Messaging drives the design and tone of each project we undertake. Concepts are developed and presented with variety and creativity and you can be confident that all the choices offered hit the target message.

A full-service graphic design firm, Maria Gabriele Design (MGD) can go beyond the creative to manage production and ensure the design integrity of your project—whether we’re liaising with your suppliers or managing MGD’s trusted network of suppliers.

I had the pleasure of working with Maria when she undertook the complete redesign of our corporate logo. She quickly grasped the nature of our culture and made some important and welcome changes. She was professional, efficient and delivered a product that we are proud to have as our symbol for over a decade now.
