Vicente Alejandro Gutiérrez

I’m an editor, writer and designer working with a revised, dual focus on user experience and narrative as a way to explore and produce content experiences across print and digital. I’ve been personally referring to this approach as “strategic narrative” and I’m curious to see where it takes me.

This website is coming back online piece by piece and I’ve updated the Work section so please check it out. Recent written contributions include: 032c (Germany), The Wire (UK),Pitchfork (USA), Noisey/VICE (USA), Dazed & Confused (UK), Neural (Italy), Mono.kultur (Germany), Bauwelt (Germany), Too Much (Japan), The Japan Times (Japan), Revista METAL (Spain), Smith Journal (Australia), F de C Reader (Japan). My last sound recording project was for The Otolith Group, a commission for dOCUMENTA(13) and my last design was a publication for the Art in Embassies Program for the US State Department.

Previously I was at KHMJ in Tokyo and am currently aiming to contribute to (as well as direct) print and digital content projects while I (side hustle) publish and edit HIGHWAY Magazine, an internationally-distributed music and sound culture publication. The print edition has been recognized by The National Endowment for the Arts, MoMA PS1 and The Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard for its original editorial perspective and design. Launched in early 2015 and published intermittently, the third issue is currently in production for release in 2020 with distribution by Printed Matter (US) and Motto (EU).
