Gerard J. Galasso is 50% designer and 50% brand strategist. 
He has been a professional graphic artist for over seven years, receiving his Masters in Branding at the School of Visual Arts while coordinating the graphics department at Union Beer Distributors in Brooklyn.

Proir to that, Gerard was an art director at few small business magazines out of a unique Jersey Shore design studio, an intern at Johnston Duffy in Philadelphia and has always been a true type enthusiast... laying type, like beer pours from a tap.
