Designer

Habib is our junior designer. And like great design, he’s unassuming, curious, and skillful. He first came to GDP as an intern, but was so charming and talented that we couldn’t resist hiring him full time. He’s a graduate of the Art and Design program at Cal Poly, where he won the program’s 2017 Outstanding Senior Award and worked on exhibits for the university’s library, including one on prison art that required frequent visits to the California Men’s Colony. As a military brat, Habib has lived all over—from Maine to Michigan to North Carolina. This gives Habib quite the perspective. One day, in his wildest dreams, he’ll retire to the Eames House in Santa Monica.
