Gianni Baha (1993) is a Canadian filmmaker, graphic designer, and artist. Selected clients include The Mentholatum Company, United Colors of Benetton, and Fabrica.

Baha’s autobiographical short film, For a Brown Guy (2018), became his calling card and established his minimalistic aesthetic and personal storytelling; a tone of voice he uses with select brands seeking rebellion from conformist marketing. His work has been featured on creative platforms like The Dots and WIRED.

He graduated from Western University in Canada and further studied at SciencesPo in Paris. He won an artist scholarship for Fabrica, the Italian research centre behind Colors Magazine, where he collaborated with photographer Oliviero Toscani. Baha then worked at the legendary and unorthodox Dutch agency, KesselsKramer, creating alongside the artist himself, Erik Kessels.

In 2017, Baha started his own graphics line, “Gianni Something,” re-thinking the ironic tee. Most notably, he designed limited edition tees for United Colors of Benetton’s international collection, curated by fashion designer, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac.

Baha works between his studios in North America and Europe.
