Andrew Gibbs, Founder of The Dieline, to Deliver Scanpack Keynote
The Dieline has been called “the ultimate go-to website for high quality packaging design”. We are therefore thrilled to announce that its Founder and CEO Andrew Gibbs will deliver a keynote speech at Scanpack 2018.
– Scandinavia always punches way above its weight in the world of packaging innovation. So I am looking forward immensely to showing Mr. Andrew Gibbs what’s new at Scanpack”, says Mrs. Anna-Lena Friberg, Scanpack Business Manager.
After receiving his bachelors in graphic design at the age of 19, Gibbs worked as a production artist for a gourmet gift company where he designed products and packaging for major US retailers and brands. Seeing a great need for daily package design inspiration, he founded The Dieline in 2007. It quickly became the world’s most popular package design website, attracting millions of readers.
In 2009 Gibbs founded The Dieline Awards to recognise the world’s best consumer product packaging design, and in 2010 The Dieline Conference, a programme of case studies and industry best practices for creative professionals in the industry. In 2015 he was named Editor-in-Chief of HOW Design Magazine, becoming the youngest editor of a design magazine ever.
Gibbs now serves as Creative Director and Programming Partner for HOW Design Live, one of the largest annual gatherings of creatives in the world. He is also an advisory board member of AIGA Los Angeles, and teaches packaging design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
