THIS IS THE STORY

We have been on the road for almost ten years doing awesome things with incredible people for remarkable clients and partners in thrilling projects and experiences. Get to know who we are, where we came from and the things we are passionate about. And if you feel connected with our beliefs, come closer and join us.

Gabba is a creative bureau focused on inventing and developing digital content and experiences for all forms of interactive media. We are thinkers and doers: art and creative directors, designers, storytellers, motion designers, 3d artists, web and mobile developers, producers, creative planners, strategists and problem-solvers. And above all we are dreamers.

Look around the room you’re sitting in. Every object in that room – the right angle table, the book, the paper, the computer screen, the ceramic cup was once imaginary. Not a thing in the room existed in the pleistocene. Every one of them started out as an imaginary fantasy in someone’s mind. – Alison Gopnik, Imagination is Real 

 

It all has begun with one curious mind starving for new technologies and innovation, enveloped in an old-fashioned checked flannel shirt and reverberating an indefectible Ramones soundtrack that has never really abandoned our daily playlist.

 

At a very young age, back in 1999, Danilo Almeida joined one of the first mobile companies in Brazil and probably in the world. The damage was done. He couldn’t ignore digital was irrevocable. Five years later, Gabba was born as the 3d studio in São Paulo that changed the way 3d was employed in digital projects..

 

Eventually Gabba expanded its interests to other digital fields. A multidisciplinary team was assembled to attend a wide variety of projects. This team worked mostly remotely, from the very beginning, in a period that this idea was still incipient and even terrifying for many. But not a single deadline was missed, not a single client was disappointed and here we are, ten years later, still seeking new ways to better work, to inspire and be inspired and most of all to have a good time, lots of fun and sometimes tears while creating, producing and delivering almost anything you can think of.

 

We’ve done amazing things so far as we share the love for experimentation and innovation. We’ve team up with some absurd-talent creative minds of all kinds, developers, artists, producers and we all became very good friends along this journey. This is what Gabba is about: friendship, hard laughs, countless and unthinkable challenges and a lot of boldness to get out there and do things in a way that was never done before.

 

the road we’ve traveled

We have been on the road for almost ten years doing awesome things with incredible people for remarkable clients and partners in thrilling projects. Yes, we are overwhelmed by so much awesomeness. But this doesn’t make us self-righteous, we are truly grateful for the experiences we have had so far and work our asses off every single day to keep making things happen. We are proud to share with you some of the highlights of this road we have been traveling on. We enjoy the ride. Every ride.

What and How We Do Things

We basically create, design, develop, write and do for pretty much any digital media you can think of. We've worked these last years to build a rock-solid multidisciplinary team. We're not interested in over specialization, we want to groom people across interdisciplinary skills more and more everyday. No matter what we do, we are digital and we don't believe in limiting ourselves to a particular branch of knowledge. Gabba is always working in an extremely collaborative way through every single project.

people we team-up with

“Client” is a boring word to define our relationship with the people that make what we do worth it. It’s not even a very accurate term, since Gabba was founded in a solid network based on friendships. Our first “real clients” were our buddies and this is the way we have been doing business and new friendships along the road. They are people we love to team-up with to create great things. Here are some extraordinary people that keep us challenging ourselves to push the boundaries.

We are not pretentious about awards and yet we can't be blasé by saying we don’t care about them. We had the honor to be part of amazing projects that gave us the chance to get some recognition and we are always glad to celebrate with the people that made it possible.

I’ve had that kind of experience myself: I’m looking at a map and I see someplace that makes me think, ‘I absolutely have to go to this place, no matter what’. And most of the time, for some reason, the place is far away and hard to get to. I feel this overwhelming desire to know what kind of scenery the place has, or what people are doing there. It’s like measles – you can’t show other people exactly where the passion comes from. It’s curiosity in the purest sense. An inexplicable inspiration.” ― Haruki Murakami, 1Q84
