Nguyen Gobber is a graphic design practice helping people and institutions from the academic, cultural, and social fields to leave a profound impression. They do so by carefully crafting compelling appearances for 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 Klasse 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 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 where they received the academic title Master of Arts in Visual Communication and Iconic Research with a master’s thesis on metaphorical design concepts and a master’s thesis on the visualisation of utopian ideas. In addition, they developed an expertise in type design by attending seminars and workshops led by Prof. Philipp Stamm at the FHNW, Matthias Pauwels at the SfG Basel, Dinamo at UdK Berlin, and Hannes Famira from the Type@Cooper programme.

Before founding Nguyen Gobber, they worked at various highly regarded design studios such as Hubertus Design, NODE Berlin, Raffinerie, and others. In these contexts and/or under their own name, Hoang Nguyen and David Gobber have so far designed for 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, Verlag Baselland, Russell Perkins, FHNW School of Architecture, University of Vienna, Adobe, and others.
