Mark Gowing Design
Living and working in Sydney, Mark Gowing is a designer of identities, books and posters. Mark is driven by the belief that design is as much about feeling as it is about understanding. This commitment is exhibited in the studio’s output where Mark seeks to engage audiences with emotional communications for leading arts businesses such as Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation, Preservation Music Sydney Opera House and Hopscotch Films. Much of Mark’s work is characterised by investigations into typography and language through his experimentation with abstraction and form. In 2008 Mark became the first Australian to win the Gold Medal at the Warsaw International Poster Biennale, which has since been followed by a Gold Medal at the Mexico International Poster Biennale in 2012. Mark is director of the Australian Poster Biennale and founder of Formist Publishers.
