Born in Nepal, David S. Gepperth spent his early childhood in India. Gepperth was already working for renowned advertising agencies while studying Print and Media Technology at the Höhere Graphische Bundes-Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt (Austrian Federal Education and Research Institute for Graphics) in Austria. In 2009, he commenced teaching at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. Gepperth’s creative portfolio reflects India’s wide range of colours.
His course print and pre-press gives students insights into the world of image editing and fine drawing and deals with the theoretical content of a wide range of subjects from colour theory to printmaking. However, the course focus lies on practical work with programmes such as Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop. Most of the practical part deals with the art of editing and creative image editing techniques, which students put into practice in real projects.
