Hello, my name is Gab Madrid. I am a designer and an illustrator.
I graduated from the University of Santo Tomas College of Fine Arts and Design with a degree in Advertising.
I am the co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of The Color Cure, a web and graphic design studio.
I also co-founded Cyburban, an app that lets you create your own adventure race, big or small, without additional personnel.
I was raised by animated films and TV shows, and still growing old with them. Mythology and folklore – both local and foreign – fill my childhood dreams. I regard animation and video games as a substantial and valuable medium in the same regard as books and film.
My design philosophy can be summarized by a quote (largely attributed to Albert Einstein):
If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.
I am determined to show this in my work: To explain an artwork/emotion/brand using the simplest set of words and imagery. To explain enough to aptly convey my intended message, but not too much to unnecessarily confuse or spoil my audience.
My skills include (but are not limited to):
- Character Design
- Game Art
- Icon Design
- Comic/Sequential Art
- Identity Design
- Graphic Design
