gillian harvey // graphic designer + co-owner
After soaking up experience and accolades in the design industry for the past 12 years, Gillian is still craving the complex in the quest to make simple. Her philosophy on communication is foolproof: ask a lot of questions, don’t edit anything, and then simplify visually. She is an instructor, researcher in Information Design at the Department of Art and Design, University of Alberta since 2004 and a project-based art director. As a former studio partner, she conducts each project with wit and efficiency. Her core capabilities include clear language, data visualization, standards and procedural information, wayfinding and signage, typography for reading, print and digital publishing and form and document design.
