Young Guns 15

2017: Now under the umbrella of The One Club for Creativity, Young Guns 15 returned the competition to an open entry process, encouraging young creatives from a broad range of disciplines to apply. By seeking out talent from beyond the design and advertising worlds, Young Guns 15 received a record number of entries from more than 40 countries.

The YG15 Jury was made up of nearly 50 acclaimed creatives, equally balanced between men and women, and with just over half of them past Young Guns winners themselves. After nearly two months of careful deliberation, the jury selected 84 entrants for a finalist list — the first time in Young Guns history that the finalists were publicly revealed. The final round of judging resulted in 32 new Young Guns, who were awarded a colorful translucent Cube designed by YG9 winner Roanne Adams and RoAndCo.

The Young Guns 15 ceremony and party took place on November 16, 2017.


Gabe Liberti

Installation Artist + Music Producer

Based In: Brooklyn, NY
Originally from: Bucks County, PA

Gabe Liberti is a Brooklyn-based interactive installation artist and music producer. He is co-founder of Dave & Gabe, a studio dedicated to making physical experiences that are driven by audience participation. Frustrated by the creative limitations of stereo recorded music and definitions about who is and is not considered musical, his installations invite all guests to contribute to reactive music compositions via unique tactile interfaces. He has collaborated with electronic musicians Matthew Dear, RAC, and Skrillex to bring their music to audiences through this lens. His installations have been commissioned by Turner Broadcasting, Deloitte, MTV, The Macallan, and Microsoft. In 2016, his work won a Gold Cannes Lion for Sound and two Silver Lions in both Brand Experience and Digital Installation and he was named by Adweek as one of 20 Content Creators Who Are Setting the Bar for Creativity.
