About Me

Brian Gardner

I’m Brian Gardner, a Chicago-based designer, WordPress expert, and the creator of Powder Studio—a block-based WordPress theme and design system that revolutionizes how beautiful websites are made.

I build unique brands, celebrate vibrant colors & sell digital products.

I believe that good design encompasses pushing the envelope through experimentation and exploration of novel concepts. It involves cultivating a creative vision and embracing an out-of-the-box mindset, ultimately creating unique, unparalleled designs.

In September 2021, I officially joined the Developer Relations team at WP Engine. My position is an excellent fit, as it allows me to spend each day immersed in areas I love: design, WordPress, community.

In my free time, you can find me frequenting the local Starbucks or running a nearby trail. I’m also an unapologetic Taylor Swift fan.

Speaking of music, these are my all-time favorite songs:

  1. Here’s Where The Story Ends – The Sundays
  2. Black – Pearl Jam
  3. the lakes (the long pond studio sessions) – Taylor Swift
  4. Do What You Have to Do – Sarah McLachlan
  5. Put Me Down – The Cranberries

Moving right along, I invite you to follow me on Twitter, stalk me on Instagram, and connect with me on LinkedIn. Hope to see you there.

Until then, may the odds be ever in your favor.
