Nguyen Gobber is a graphic design practice helping people and institutions from the academic, cultural, and social fields to be perceived as the experts they are. They do so by carefully crafting a compelling appearance for their knowledge, ideas, and projects through distinctive visual identities and thoughtful editorial designs.


Nguyen Gobber is the collaborative practice of Hoang Nguyen and David Gobber. They have studied in renowned institutions such as the graphic design class of Prof. Fons Hickmann at the University of the Arts in Berlin and the FHNW Academy of Arts and Design (with major in typography) in Basel, where they obtained their respective bachelor’s degrees in Visual Communication. To deepen their knowledge in design further, they enrolled in the international postgraduate programme of the FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel and received the academic title Master of Arts in Visual Communication and Iconic Research with a master’s thesis on metaphorical design concepts as well as a master’s thesis on visualisation of utopian ideas. In addition, they developed an expertise in type design by attending seminars and workshops led by experts such as Prof. Philipp Stamm at the FHNW, Matthias Pauwels at the SfG Basel, Dinamo at UdK Berlin, and Hannes Famira from the Type@Cooper programme, which further strengthens the studio’s design capabilities. Before the establishment of Nguyen Gobber, they worked with and for various highly regarded design studios such as Hubertus Design, NODE Berlin, Raffinerie, and others. In these contexts as well as independently, they conceived and/or implemented designs for clients such as HKW Haus der Kulturen der Welt, MIT Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), Swiss Federal Office of Culture (FOC), Greenpeace Switzerland, The Basel School of Design, FHNW Academy of Arts and Design, University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland, University of the Arts Berlin, Museum Rietberg, Kunstmuseum Luzern, and others.
