"We were looking for a fun but mysterious vibe for our app Klikaklu, and Gabe came through with an excellent design. He also offered up great suggestions for transitions, and helped smooth out the edges of the UX. We've received many positive comments on the product, and Gabe's work has played a strong role." Ken Cooper Klikaklu
