My name is Gabriella Dowling and I am a Brazilian Designer.

I am focused on the intersection of print and digital media within the areas of branding, editorial design and art direction. I believe I have an eye for a relatable, thoughtful and clear design, where the brand values are enhanced to connect better to its users. 


I graduated from Architecture in 2018 at Uniceub, Brazil and pursued various internships and worked as a junior architect in studios such as Lzarquitetura, Lzplanejamento, Arqflex and even the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I engaged in several collaborations with friends and co-workers which helped me launch my first Tile Design with LADRILHARIA in Brasília. 


After Architecture my passion was to study and explore the design field. I applied in different universities in mid 2015 and even got a scholarship to study in Hague, Netherlands. However, due to my ongoing responsibilities in architecture, I decided not to go. During this time, I discovered that I have a clear eye for detail, which is why I was so good in technical drawings. I was also part of a research group at my university where we published a paper in Upcycling Material and Sustainability in Interior Design.


Wanting to learn has always kept me going and I even had the privilege of doing a summer course at, AUB – Arts University Bournemouth, UK in 2016, to sharpen my design skills and explore new perspectives. 


In 2018, I decided to move to Italy to pursue my passion as a Designer. I did a bit of freelance work with some private clients during the course of my Masters in Product Design at NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti Milano, and also took part in a marathon competition held by the town hall Regione Lombardia and H-farm


I connected with professionals in the area and briefly worked with Studio Koster to create a new furniture product to fit the aesthetics of the company Montis.
