Gabriel Senn

I have been a practitioner in the fields of graphic design & visual communications for over 30 years. My design work has included publications and packaging; displays including point of sale, exhibits and three-dimensional design; environmental design including vehicles, signage and uniforms; identity creation including corporate identity, program and product branding and usage guidelines.

Currently, I am applying this knowledge and experience for Web site design and development as well as Web apps development and business process automation.

As a business owner in the field for over 20 years, I have acquired a wealth of experience to guide the MediaBox team.

I have also been a teacher of graphic design in Canada and abroad and a published author in the field. Speaker at conferences about Web marketing, and have been a contributor to professional publications and quoted in articles about the profession of graphic design.
