gebr.silvestri is a Amsterdam-based design studio. We – Adrian Silvestri-Chyle and Stefan Silvestri – work as art directors and designers in two and three dimensions. We produce visual solutions in media ranging from print to online to 3D. Our projects range from brand identities and books through products to exhibition and stage design.
Following our five-year training in two- and three-dimensional design at Schule für Gestaltung St. Gallen and at Globus in St. Gallen in our native Switzerland, we both studied graphic design at Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Our design studio gebr.silvestri has been in business since 1994.
We have been giving workshops in typography and the language of images at Merz Akademie in Stuttgart since 1996 and teaching at Design Academy Eindhoven since 2004. In the past we gave workshops at Ecole des Beaux Arts in Mulhouse (1998–1999) and we taught at St Joost Akademie in Breda (2002–2004).

2012 – ongoingBrand identity, general design, editorial team
The hello gorgeous foundation aims to bring an end to the stigma that people living with HIV so often face in their day-to-day lives. The foundation’s eponymic quarterly magazine does this by showing people with HIV living perfectly normal lives. Its target audience is everyone living with HIV, but also their partners, friends and relatives, as well as anyone else who is interested in HIV or works with people who have HIV.
As founding members of the foundation, we form part of the magazine’s editorial team. Having developed the visual concept and brand identity, we do the art direction.
The magazine ‘hello gorgeous’ is a full-fledged lifestyle magazine. It is printed in full colour on uncoated Tauro 100 GSM paper and has a full-colour, high-gloss cover. With brightly coloured full-page images and cleanly gridded typography, the magazine’s attractive layout adds to its quality.
