Welcome to the Studio
Delaney Gibbons Studio began out of a desire to use my skills and experience for more than a nameless contribution to a corporate bottom line. For me, worthwhile personal reward stems from helping likeminded passionate people to dream bigger. I love helping freelancers, small business owners, and other creative entrepreneurs to optimize and grow their brand through helpful tips, tool recommendations, hand-picked resources, and creative inspiration.
The driving force behind my design aesthetic is my background in illustration and creative writing. I believe that the hybrid illustrator-designer is the bee's knees and can take projects to new heights. I also believe in the power of storytelling to sway hearts and minds.

Meet the maker
Hi! I'm Delaney. I grew up just outside of Philadelphia and made my way to New York at 19 to pursue my passions for art, design, and writing. I earned my BFA in Illustration from Parsons The New School For Design, as well as my BA in Creative Writing from Eugene Lang College.
After 4 internships spanning book publishing, art exhibitions, PR & marketing, and web design, I never found just one home among my varied set of skills and interests. So, I kept after all of my passions. I wrote for respected online publications and had my poetry published. I designed websites, promo postcards, and other marketing materials for bestselling authors. I illustrated posters and designed collateral for international marketing campaigns. I wrote copy and designed ads for companies big and small, hitting millions of eyes a day. I contributed to the user interface design of an award-winning ebook, designed ads published in the NYT Book Review, and I wrote, designed, illustrated, and produced two books of my own.
...and that's all just in the past 5 years. My commitment to pursuing my passions is unwavering, and my desire and ability to help others pursue theirs grows stronger each day.
In August 2016, after almost nine years in the concrete jungle, I traded in my beloved New York pizza for Chicago deep dish. Now you can find me designing for dscout and writing helpful content here at the studio for creative go-getters like myself.
Other important facts? I make it a point to say “I love you” to every dog I meet, and you'll most likely find me sitting in the sunniest spot in the room. I also love hearing your stories and how I can be of help to you. Say hello through Twitter, Instagram, or email!
