Gilgamesh is not just a design studio, it’s a philosophy about considered branding and tailored visual communication for people who have a belief in their own potential to actively produce culture. This philosophy of visual communication includes five core pillars: graphic design, art direction, typography, illustration, and film & photography. Gilgamesh uses these five pillars to support the greater cultural rubric of design, art, craft, and discourse.
As a creative studio, Gilgamesh defines design as a necessity, not a service, producing carefully crafted and conceptually sturdy work for people who maintain robust aesthetic and ethical perspectives.
Design holds with it a level of cultural validity and can be used to promote brands that strive to be culturally relevant. Gilgamesh aims to reinforce the role that design has as a cultural pillar, make it popular knowledge, and steer brands towards achieving cultural relevance.
Gilgamesh is an adaptation that tempers the idealism of art and philosophy with the realism of design and craft. Supporting the idea that design is a kind of thinking and making that can stimulate cultural growth. At best, design can uplift people, and cultivating an appreciation for culture forms the foundation of Gilgamesh.
Well-considered branding & mindful design assists with the production of culture.
Great brands have an uplifting influence using well-tailored visual communication. From wine farms to animation studios, see a selection of work from Gilgamesh below.
Design is not a service,
It’s a necessity.
Think about the Goldilocks Zone, between conceptual thinking and craft-based processes. A special blend that combines strategic creativity with creative strategy, creating a collaborative platform for the brands that Gilgamesh works with.
