Vacation  | 

I just came back from a great 2-week vacation (somewhat of a graduation trip) in Asia. I presented a proposal for an advertising campaign to the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (the project can be seen here) and spent time in Kowloon City, Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Phuket.

My favorite photo of trip, taken with a cell phone camera, is below.

Screen Identity: Media Coverage  | 

Screen Identity was recently featured on CSULB’s Daily 49er (print and online issues) and KCAL 9 News. The Daily 49er article (by Cynthia Mauleon) can be read here. I go into more detail about what motivated me to create the piece and what I hoped it would accomplish.

KCAL 9′s story can be viewed below, or, alternatively, on the KCAL 9/CBS Los Angeles’ website.

Update (April 9, 2014): The Long Beach Press Telegram also wrote an article on Screen Identity; read it here.

Union Weekly contributor Craig Gozer wrote a piece on Screen Identity, which was printed on the March 10, 2014 issue of the newspaper and is available here.

Update (April 18, 2014): Quipsologies and Design Taxi featured Screen Identity on their websites. Many thanks!

Sagmeister X Walsh  | 

My friend/design partner Brian Mark and I had the chance to participate in Sagmeister X Walsh’s “Adobe Remix” project. Sagmeister X Walsh has been released as a series of episodes, the first one of which is embedded below.

We can be seen gracefully placing down two piñatas at the 2m30s mark. We also participate in episodes 2-5, available on Sagmeister & Walsh’s Vimeo account

Screen Identity  | 

Last week, I collaborated with José Alves to create “Screen Identity”, a public art piece I designed to be displayed at CSU Long Beach between February 24-26. The fabrication of the 7-foot sculpture was a project in itself, so a huge shout out goes to José for all the help and the awesome work.

The finished piece along with more information about Screen Identity can be seen here: www.gabeferreira.com/si

After having the same website for more than a year, it was finally time to upload some new projects and redesign everything. Thanks for visiting.

Over the course of the past several weeks, I collaborated with Elijah Zapien to create Type Finder, a website that is intended to help designers and design-enthusiasts navigate a curated library of typefaces.
