Gabby Manotoc Design


I'm an award-winning user experience designer based in New York City, working in the tech space. Beyond UX and UI, I have experience in branding and marketing for both print and digital mediums.


Selected Clients: Citi, The Corcoran Group, ABC Supply, Encirca, Samsung, Verizon, and Nike.

Outside of work, I'm an avid amateur photographer, grid purist, and crazy dog mom.
