About me

Hi there. I'm Alex Wilson. I’m a 23 year old, Falmouth University graduate. Whilst I have a variety of design skills, I particularly enjoy print and editorial design, branding, and user interface design. I am interested in design writing, Swiss and Modernist design, and how the digitalisation of the creative industries has affected graphic design and publishing. I am a very driven and work-orientated person, and I always strive to deliver. I’m keen to learn from fellow creatives and I thrive when working collaboratively to come up with the best design solutions. I have strong design knowledge when it comes to concepts such as grids and layouts, and have a good sense for typography and image editing. When I’m not working I am an avid cricket and badminton player, with a predilection for Oxford shirts.
