Sam Gilbey Designs


For want of a more succinct term, I'm what you might call a multi-disciplinary graphic designer.

Over the last 15 years in the creative industry I've designed everything from animations to websites via apps, branding, brochures, films and games, with interface design at the core.

Based north of London, I've worked with many well-respected agencies and production houses, as well as directly with many clients. Where projects call for it, I sub-contract specialist staff (such as animators, developers and other designers).

Over the last few years I've been fortunate enough to work on several confidential projects for a number of high profile clients (because they're for pitches, they're internal, under NDA and so on), and as such, maintaining a public-facing online portfolio has become both impractical, and misrepresentative of the breadth of work that I do.

I'm always interested to hear about potential creative projects though, so whether you're looking for design & art direction, ux & ui, branding, even sketching & storyboarding, how about we meet in person so that I can show you some relevant examples? Please drop me an email and we can go from there. You'll also find me on Twitter and LinkedIn.

Direct clients have included:
AllofUs, Cheil, Endemol/Zeppotron, Mother, MTV Networks, M&C Saatchi, Preloaded, Saint/RKCR/Y&R, Somethin' Else, Twitter, unit9 & Viacom.

End clients have included:
Activision, BBC, Channel 4, Freeview, Google, Guinness, IBM, LucasArts, Manchester University, Nickleodeon, Nokia, O2, Ogilvy, Parliament & Sony/Playstation.

It turns out that I'm also an illustrator specialising in contemporary painterly portraits but you can find more about that here if it's
something of interest to you.
