Hello! I’m Alf Gadberry, Art Director at Outer Space Studio. I work in branding, illustration and design.
I am a designer/illustrator and cat fancier based in Manhattan. I was born in Montreal, Canada and grew up in Caracas, Venezuela. I received my BA in Architecture and Design at Universidad Simon Bolivar. I specialize in graphic design, brand development, and illustration (print, digital, and by hand).
As a former architect, I pay close attention to spatial concepts and the rigor of design processes. As a visual artist, I take inspiration from science fiction, graphic novels, and, of course, the amazing city of New York. When I am not designing or painting, I am often exploring the city, throwing toy mice to my cat, taking photos, taking care of my gardner or riding my bike. I am always looking for new artistic inspirations, opportunities and creative endeavors.
