About me

I’m Alistair Cooper, Digital Designer with a focus on graphic communication and typography. Since graduating from the London College of Communication (UAL) three years ago, I was scouted by digital studio keepthinking.it, where I remained for two and a half years. Being the sole graphic designer at the studio, I was responsible for the production of visual communication and User-Interface design. Working exclusively with global cultural organisations (museums, galleries, archives, collections), I’ve had the opportunity to lead UX, UI and Art Direction for a variety of institutions across the world, from New York to Hong Kong. Focusing on the essence of Identity Communication and User–Centric Experiences, I also have a passion (or obsession) for typography, namely Swiss modernism. I’ve been working on a typeface system for the past three years. For the past year, I’ve taken time-off to travel (Japan, Australia, a few places in Europe) and to curate my portfolio. Recently I’ve been offered my position back at Keepthinking.it, where I currently happily remain.
