The Team

Denny Ford

Co-Director
Project Manager

I graduated from Massey University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Design (Hons). Since then I have been working with DesignGel, and while it's been a learn-as-you-go process, I’ve loved learning how to run a business. When I'm not at my desk, I'm in the garden with a pot of tea and a good podcast.

Co-Director
Art Direction

I'm a Massey Graphic Design Graduate with a passion for typography, strongman and burgers. I aim to one day combine them all and live a most fulfilling life of type, lifting stones and devouring vegetables in a homemade cabin in the woods.

I'm excited to be a part of DesignGel and to get stuck in to some great new projects.
