Gin Braverman is the founder and creative director of the visionary firm gin design group. She has spent the last decade shaping Houston’s burgeoning hospitality scene, developing originative and fully integrated designs for award-winning food and beverage concepts, independent chefs, sommeliers and national restaurant and hospitality groups.
Like all worthwhile paths, Gin’s was winding. After graduating from The University of Texas at Austin, her career began in NYC working in production for TV and film, ultimately designing for HGTV’s extreme home remodel show Home Rules. She also spent significant time abroad, traveling Europe and living in Asia, working with a Taiwanese design firm. When she moved to Houston, she joined the team at Installations Antiques, where she deepened her appreciation for and understanding of artisanship in the built-environment apprenticing in their workshop. Multi-cultural fascination and global immersion define her approach and inform her diverse design portfolio, which includes such projects as the Garden Bungalows at La Colombe d’Or, Stomping Grounds Garden Oaks, Eunice, multiple Goode Company restaurants, Camerata, Oxheart and Axelrad Beer Garden.
Her work has been featured in such esteemed publications as GQ, Architectural Digest, The Architect’s Newspaper, Texas Monthly, PaperCity, Wallpaper* City Guide, Interior Design, Hospitality Design, and others.
Now a Project Manager, Kim started at gin design group in 2013 as an intern in college. After graduating at The Art Institute of Houston with a Bachelors of Arts in Interior Design, she turned her internship into a full-time position and has continued to grow with the company. Having been mentored by gdg’s creative director since the start of her tenure, Kim is familiar with all the nuanced details involved in designing and marketing a successful F&B environment, from purchasing and installation to preparing the space for a photoshoot.
As Project Lead, Christina navigates the client-designer relationship with creative-problem solving, and complete dependability. She earned her Interior Design degree from TCU, and spent the early part of her career traveling the world, from Mexico City to Dubai, designing boutique hotels from concept to completion. In 2016, Christina joined the gdg team, bringing more than a decade of industry experience in the team. While she is fluent in almost any design style, she appreciates modern to transitional spaces with clean lines, and layered textures and textiles, and always tries to add moments of character to a space—whether through antiques or found objects. In her free time you’ll find her at a soccer game with her two young boys, or trying out a new restaurant in town.
