Gary W. Hinsche
I studied design at Santa Monica College, Long Beach State and Art Center College of Design before joining the legendary design firm of Robert Miles Runyan & Associates in 1968. Runyan had a profound influence on my life. He was a mentor, a partner and a friend for more than forty years. I purchased the firm in 1986 and reinvented it with a new name in 1995, Point Zero Design. I merged the firm with the Advertising Agency Sabatino/Day in 2006.

I feel fortunate to have worked with some of the world’s most prestigious brands and events, including the 1984 Olympics, 1994 Men’s World Cup, the 1999 Women’s World Cup, Teledyne, Vaurnet France, Beckman Coulter, Computer Science Corporation, Sutter Health, Caesar’s Place, The National Memorial Holocaust Museum, Pioneer Electronics, Emerson and Vitas.

My work has been honored with gold medals from the New York and Los Angeles Art Directors Clubs, AIGA, the Mead Annual Report Show, and has been featured in Print, Graphis, and Communications Arts. I served as president of the Los Angeles Art Directors Club, sat on the advisory board of AIGA/LA and as Adjunct Professor at the Art Center College of Design.
