Creative Director & Designer in New York City


Tony Gamino


Who Am I (the non-existential version)?

Creative Director in NYC

“I’m driven by a philosophy of lead by example. I believe that earning respect, trust, and admiration are the best ways to build a winning team and to create an environment in which everyone excels.”

I am passionate about design. Not simply whatever falls under the umbrella of graphic design but all areas of creative expression, whether it be interiors, architecture, art, or objects. I am constantly inspired by the world around me and this inspiration and passion shines in my work. I still get a rush from the creative process and seeing a project through to completion. My areas of expertise extend from award-winning print editorial to digital, identity & branding, marketing & promotions, art direction, and data visualization. I’m an out-of-the-box thinker and problem solver. Therefore, whatever design dilemma you have, I can solve it. This includes the ability to fully realize projects from inception to completion, no matter the platform or medium. My design aesthetic is contemporary and clean, ranging from big and bold to subtle and nuanced, but consistently elegant and respectful of the material. My client list includes names such as AOL, Coca-Cola, McDonald's, and Microsoft, among many others. In addition, my graduate-level studies (MS, Media Management, The New School, 2013) and work experiences have instilled in me the skills necessary to be an effective leader of teams of any size. When not working, you can often find me either planning my next global adventure, out running or on a hike, playing tennis, or brushing up on new software and skills. —Tony
