Pursuing ideas that profoundly influence the pattern of life in the places they are found, the essence of creative inspiration is enshrined through simplicity.
Digitally-conversant and internationally-conscious by nature, Gu's multi-media practice establishes collaborative dialogue with creatives in order to tell their inspiring stories in both still and moving image. The results are seen in print, on screen and online. Advanced post-production services enhance what’s seen in the camera’s eye, turning a photograph into a story in itself.

Global clients seeking a sense of commercial sensitivity combined with artistry find those essentials with Gu's work.
