About me
Hey, I'm Alex and I am a multidisciplinary designer who has recently graduated from Gray's School of Art! I am interested in a broad spectrum of different work and briefs, using a variety of media platforms. I would describe myself as an all rounder as I try not to limit myself as to what I am creatively capable of or my involvement with different fields of practice or work. I enjoy trying my hand at everything, even if I have no experience with it. I am creatively open minded and enjoy the satisfaction of embracing and overcoming a challenge! If you like what you see or want to know more about a project, feel free to contact me:

  • GDFS T-Shirt Design
    GDFS T-Shirt DesignWhilst taking part in the Graphic Design Festival Scotland (GDFS) 2019, I signed up to Kelly Anna's workshop. We were tasked to create a T-shirt design with whatever subject matter we wanted. I chose greek/roman art and rugby. Once we had created our designs, we were to then upload our designs to Everpress where we had the chance to sell our T-Shirts on Everpress's website.

  • Home Truths
    Home TruthsThis was my entry at this years Graphic Design Festival Scotland Live Brief working under Ilka. Through this live brief, I won an internship at Ilka which will take place in late Summer 2020/ Early 2021. Challenge: To create a something which was inspired by what we identified as, or with “home”. Solution: I decided that to me, home wasn’t necessarily somewhere, it was more through sayings and dialect which reminded me of my “home”. So I decided to act on this and create a concept campaign
  • Pure Beer LTD
    Pure Beer LTDPure Beer LTD is a new Aberdeenshire brewing company. They set a competition online asking designers to create a new, minimal and modern logo. These were my two final outcomes. My first design idea was to create a logo using some of the inspirations that Pure Beer LTD had mentioned within the brief. The main imagery that I focused on for the first logo design was a Unicorn.
