Gasparetti Ribar learned the art of design from her parents who have been in the field for 35+ years. From playing with and matching stacks of Pantone color swatches at age four to designing exclusively for Uncommon Ground as an intern when she moved to Chicago, she's developed skills through experience and mentorship from masters of the craft. She now freelances as she creates her own artwork with the knowledge and abilities she's gained, also teaming up with her partner to create prints and patches under the moniker Trash Formal.
Gasparetti Ribar is a traditionalist in the true sense of the word, specializing in print design and always armed with a sketch book at meetings to feel out and create images and ideas on the spot with clients. With a style that's sharp and bold, her flexibility and love of the craft prove to be a winning combination when working collaboratively or on her own.
