Phil Rowland


Phil creates clear and compelling images that help tell the story of GBBN’s work in print, presentations, video and books, including GBBN’s annual Design Expedition and Design Issues Series (DIS) publications. He is the founder of GUTS Cincinnati, an annual pumpkin carving fundraiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, as well as the creator of You Are Here, a series of hand-drawn map installations found throughout Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. A talented and creative visual artist who appreciates art and order coming together for a defined purpose, Phil can also reel off Ohio State football stats or the lyrics to the Broadway hit Hamilton with equal aplomb.
