Karl Gilbert

Art Director & Designer


Hello. I’m a concept-driven, hybrid Art Director & Designer based in London. I have a bunch of experience both above and below the line. I’ve worked on the lot, from apps, games & graphic novels, to knitted socks, ice-cream vans & bespoke teapots. I also make lovely cup of tea.

I work either alone or in a Creative Team with Copywriter Matt Taylor and am available to work on or off-site anywhere in the UK, Europe and the USA, (Green Card holder).

I'm proud to have won the Yuno Juno Freelancer Award 2017 for the Creative (Arts) category as voted by my clients.

Please get in touch!
