Hello, I’m Alex, a Graphic Designer currently based in Sheffield, UK.

The aim for all my projects, big or small, is to deliver a concise design solution that communicates an idea in the most clear and direct way. It is essential in my practice that content is handled appropriately with close attention to detail and a solid supporting concept, making effective use of all possible opportunities a brief can offer — ultimately leading to the development of stronger ideas.

I have experience in branding, advertising, website design, and print and drive myself on hard work, passion and a love for design that is inspiring, innovative and fun. I have been working as a freelancer for the last 4 years. Currently seeking agency/studio positions and collaborators based in the North, UK.
