They say that every designer has a crush on Gemma O’Brien and I can see why. Her energy and enthusiasm are infectious and she bounces around the stage, shouting out to the audience in such a friendly, fun way. She does awesome typographical work too!
From her Portfolio page at the Loop:
Gemma O’Brien is a designer based in Sydney working primarily with hand-drawn lettering, typography, graphic design, illustration and art direction for motion graphics.

Gemma does such interesting and amazing work with type and letters, and it was so great to see her speak and show the process behind the work.
