Hi I'm alex! I'm a Scottish designer currently in Manchester. I specialise in hand drawn and digital artwork that is fun, whimsical and imaginative. I am influenced by children's' books, wildlife and take a lot of inspiration from my beautiful Island home of Orkney.
• Providing website designs and layouts, from wireframing to finished design, for fully responive interactive websites. • High quality Infographic design, graphic layout and hand drawn illustrations for clients. • Graphic design, logo variations, rebranding and tool redesigns for inhouse rebranding. • Video Production: This includes video sourcing, editing, high quality video grading and after effects animations. • Using my strong project management, team communication and client facing skills on a day to day basis to produce high quality work always with functionality, responsiveness, time and budget in mind.
I collaborated with another local designer to create a fully illustrated poster and website design for their music festival 2014 and 2015. We wanted to create an eclectic blend of wildlife, people and nature that complemented the festivals’ eccentric and unpredictable nature and present it in a stylised, fun and visually arresting manner.
I was responsible for producing high quality artwork, graphic design, layout and illustrations - as well as designing and implementing a new brand for the company. I was in charge of large volume printing and maintenance of the large printing equipment. I interfaced with clients directly on a daily basis, while also managing the print and artwork schedule within the print department. I developed bespoke artwork for high profile clients including: The Scottish Parliament, Bank of Scotland, National Library of Scotland, Historic Scotland, Edinburgh Zoo and The Kelpies Helix.
I provided high quality illustrations, animations and graphic design for large international clients. I developed effective design solutions to tight deadlines. My work included: - Digital and hand drawn illustrations - Logo design - Infographics design - After Effects Animations and story boarding - Conceptualisation sketches - Creating assets for web design - Design for marketing releases
