    Hello, my name is Gary and I'm the founder of 12ONE21 Design. I'm a graduate in Master of Design (Multimedia Design) and I'm also a self-taught user interface designer, front-end developer, graphic designer and illustrator. Having close to 10 years of industry experience, I have designed and worked with global advertising agencies, corporate B2B in-house marketing teams, and provided art direction and consultancy with independent artists and studios. I’m always interested in hearing about cool new projects so get in touch!

  • Personal info

    I live in Melbourne with my wife and two beautiful children. I don't really have much spare time, but if and when I do, I would like to spend it reading and collecting comic books, playing video games, watching movies and animation and think up stories about time travel, ninjas and giant robots. I have produced and self-published my own comic book series called, Knight-Edge.
