About Me

My name is Alex, I am a designer focused on building graphic systems that are aesthetically elegant, but are more importantly; functional.

I have a passion for creative problem solving and graphic design! I have a wide range of skills but more particularly have a focus in packaging, web design, and motion graphics!

Experience

My experience has ranged from working in small design studios to prestigious environments. My path started as a hungry print geek, deeply admiring post-modern type and Carson. As my horizons expanded, I soon learned I didn't have it all figured out. I recognized design was a powerful tool for navigating the human experience, expressing empathy, and building better businesses and communities.

Over time I became dedicated to learning how to create visual language systems that would connect with people and build relationships. My mission now is to develop quality work that isn't stylized, but is functional for solving problems and destroying barriers through all disciplines of graphic design.
