    Geoffrey Gifford

    As an artist

    Since returning to Australia in 2010, I have worked primarily as an artist. My current art practise focuses on the psychology of the modern experience, the environment, and formal ideas about contemporary sculpture.

    As a designer:

    My design work has been commissioned by many leading Australian cultural institutions, such as Sydney Theatre Company, Sydney Opera House Trust, Adelaide Festival, Sydney Festival, Melbourne International Festival, and SBS. I have also worked for Regular Records, Remo General Store, TEDxSydney, General Thinking, and Deus Ex Machina.

    I have also produced images and designs for many iconic Australian bands including Icehouse, INXS, and Mental as Anything.

    My professional and creative experience includes designing theatre sets and costumes, commercial interiors, furniture, packaging, interfaces and large-scale web applications.

    I have been the recipient of numerous awards for my graphic, theatre and book designs. My graphic work is in the permanent collection of the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, the National Gallery of Victoria and the Royal Library in London.

    From 1994 to 2010, I lived in the USA and worked for major companies including The Walt Disney Company, W Hotels, America Online, TimeWarner, Just One Eye, Gagosian Galleries, and Barclays Bank.

    I have also developed digital properties for the artist Ed Ruscha, and the (late) author Dominic Dunne.
