Young Guns

Young Guns recognizes the vanguard of creative professionals 30 years of age and under. Founded in 1996, the portfolio-based competition has grown to become one of the most coveted awards for young creatives around the globe. For many designers, art directors, illustrators, copywriters, photographers, filmmakers, animators and other creatives, being named a Young Guns winner is a sure sign of a skyrocketing career, as well as a source of validation for all of the stressful days and sleepless nights that have come with early successes.

Young Guns is more than just an award; it's an exclusive community of rebels and prodigies, unsung heroes and rising stars, all who network, mentor and collaborate together. Over the years, our roster has grown to include some exceptional talent, among them Stefan Sagmeister (YG1), Rei Inamoto (YG4), James Victore (YG1), Jessica Walsh (YG8), Alli Truch (YG2), Natasha Jen (YG3), Pablo Medina (YG3), Jon Contino (YG9), Scott Stowell (YG3), Lindsay Ballant (YG7), Alex Trochut (YG6), Dark Igloo (YG10), Anna Bond (YG12), Zipeng Zhu (YG13), The Daniels (YG14) and Cait Oppermann (YG15).

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.
