Design Portfolio



Gaby Heit is an art/photo director, graphic designer and typophile with a master’s degree in Communications Design from Pratt Institute. With many years of experience in print publishing, she has led the creative direction, rebranding and design for magazines covering fashion, travel, women’s services, business, fine art and design. Also a three-time gallery director and an independent curator, Gaby represents several artists from Philadelphia and New York and has produced many exhibitions that specifically blend fine art and design.

Her work can be summarized as:
• Design: developing features, fashion wells, advertorials, redesigns, start-up projects, branding and corporate identity.
• Photo: directing and styling fashion and still life photo shoots, managing contracts for permissions and archiving.
• And also: hiring and managing photographers, illustrators, stylists, designers and freelancers from all over the nation.

Creative aside, Gaby has also worked very closely with production and sales teams to traffic ads, manage multiple schedules, and to oversee new media and promotional design.

As GabyHeit Creative Direction + Management, she offers a combination of a bold modern aesthetic, a sharp eye for detail, and an ability to prioritize while handling several projects at once, tight deadlines and small budgets.

Gaby has received a TABPI Award for Creative Direction and an AIGA Philadelphia Design Award.
