Creative Lead



Currently a Creative lead at Vimeo. Gabe Towles is a multidisciplinary designer with 8+ years of experience in branding, design/art direction, broadcast design, digital product design, and integrated advertising campaigns.

Born and raised in Nashville, TN - he's always had a passion for design. Case in point: his first website in 7th grade.
