Who are you and what do you do? 

I’m Giselle Huberman, Graphic Designer and Surface Pattern Artist. I'm devoted to think how, thru design, I can enlighten other people’s life.

How would you describe your work? 

I have a crush on geometry and simplicity. I’m drawn to a graphic, clean and pure style of design and also love bright, bold colors.

How do you go about creating your artwork? Do you prefer to work digitally or with traditional media? 

I’m all about digital. Anyway best ideas still mostly come from rough sketches on paper and a big cup of coffee.

What are you working on at the moment? 

I’m developing a range of surface pattern designs for the Interior Design/ Home Décor market.

Who or what are the top five inspirations for your work? 

Daily life. I observe the common, what surrounds me. I love to extract the essence by synthesizing lines and shapes to give it a new meaning. Inspires me the Artistic Vanguards of the XX century, especially Bauhaus. Just to name a few, I can never get enough of Sonia Delaunay's textiles, Henri Matisse’s cutouts, Joan Miro's intense delicacy and the happiness that irradiate Memphis Group designs.

What's one resource every artist, illustrator or designer should know about? 

Time management. Everyone cares about time.

What is the hardest challenge you have faced in your career, and how did you overcome it? 

Make my dreams a priority. Everyday thru hard working I demonstrate to that voice in my head that yes, I can.

What are your professional goals for the next year? 

More reality and less mockups.
