The Association of Magazine Media


Art Director

GQ Magazine, Advertising

Rachel Gogel is Art Director of GQ Advertising where she oversees the team responsible for designing all art needs for the magazine's sales, events, and integrated marketing departments. She built and manages GQ Live!, the industry's first-to-market augmented reality app powered by Aurasma technology, which transformed GQ's print-to-mobile landscape. Gogel steered GQ to become the first US magazine to launch a cover-to-cover AR experience and as a result, with several other magazines now following suit, solidified its standing as a digitally advanced leader in a print-reliant industry. Prior to GQ, she worked at Travel + Leisure magazine to help bring the T+L iPad edition to life, and at Diane von Furstenberg, where she contributed to the iconic brand’s iPhone app. Her client list also includes USA Network, Alison Klayman's Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry documentary, Peter Som, Sundance Channel, Svilu, and Calder Foundation. She was recently picked to represent the U.S. News & World Report's Best Jobs of 2013 Art Director profile, and her work was featured in Print's Regional Design Annual 2012.
