As an island girl living in an urban world, Gia's work has evolved to uniquely merge these opposing cultural aesthetics: carefree and colorful meets classic and composed.
Although nothing beats a crisp new sketchbook and freshly sharpened pencil, these days Gia primarily works digitally, using the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil.
The design process will vary slightly, depending on what the end use will be but everything starts with a rough sketch, exploring general shapes and composition.
Once something starts to take shape, details are slowly worked out and letterforms finalized.
