PHOEBECreative Director

As the name suggests, Phoebe Gazal is the founder and creative director of Phoebe Gazal Design (PGD). She started the business from a modest base in 1988, having worked at various design and advertising agencies including Clemenger, Sydney. Phoebe had already demonstrated how well her style and taste complemented her aptitude for design, having gained second class honours as a Design major in completing her Visual Communications course at The University of Technology some years earlier.

What originally began as simple designs for friends’ wedding invitations led to many requests for her unique stationery, then to larger corporate events and the business grew quickly from there. Then, with Phoebe’s knowledge of superior style and etiquette, it wasn’t too long before people wanted not just her beautiful stationery, but also her vision and advice to create and style unforgettable events. Very soon Phoebe was providing private consultations to oversee high society parties and corporate events.

Phoebe Gazal Design is Sydney’s only design agency that specialises in corporate invitations. After 12 years Phoebe’s knowledge of specialist stock, printing processes and envelope options is unrivalled. She loves to experiment with new methods of printing and creates her own techniques, pushing the creative boundaries and possibilities. This translates to corporate invitations which set an event apart, getting guests excited from the very start.

Phoebe truly ‘walks her talk’ and it is easy to see why her clients love her work and request her private consultations time and time again. Her direct and engaging character is easy-going and her passion for style and etiquette and for creating beautiful experiences is never far from mind.

Phoebe also runs Papier d’Amour, a retail business specialising in wedding, event and bespoke stationery and high end stationery products.
