As an experienced digital and graphic designer, I have worked on a breadth of projects for luxury goods brands and retailers along with large corporate organisations and high-end national distributors from within an agency environment. Since graduating with a first class honours degree in Graphic Communication at the University of Kent, I have become accustomed to projects and campaigns of a multi-channel nature, putting audience aspirations and user requirements at the forefront of my work. From first contact with a client through project definition, design and development to final delivery, I take a lead role within the team ensuring all outcomes are up-to-date with the latest research and convention from their respective environments.
During my time in the position of Head of Digital, I have introduced new processes and methods in order to first improve clarity of a project brief and subsequently the allocation of any resource spent working towards an outcome, resulting in the increased quality and efficiency of the department. Collaborating with designers and developers along with other industry professionals such as photographers, retail interior designers, marketing departments and animators from a multitude of backgrounds I am able to direct a team, bringing them together for a consistent and strategic result. I am then also comfortable presenting outcomes to an audience justifying reasoning and achieving buy-in during and at the end of a project.
Alex is a very talented, creative designer both in digital and more traditional media. His flair, passion and attention to detail is to be commended. He has plenty of workable ideas and great enthusiasm in communicating and selling them to clients and stakeholders. I very much enjoyed working with Alex and am happy to recommend him.
Pierre Lawrence - Senior Digital Project Manager
Alex is a highly creative designer and developer. I was particularly
impressed with his ability to understand the brand message and carve creative collateral that persists to this day. He is able to communicate his ideas clearly and delivers within the timeframe set.
Neil Kirkby - Joseph Cheaney & Sons
Alex is an innovative, lateral thinker and he captures the brief really well. He has a great commercial perspective and will always think one step ahead of you, which is always helpful when investing in brand marketing, design and digital communication.
Lisa Curley - The Company of Master Jewellers
Alex is an exceptional young designer whose work is simply excellent. It's excellent not only in its finished execution, but conceptually all of his work is thoroughly thought through, and the attention he pays to detail is fastidious. Alex is an all round great communicator—both visually and verbally. His ability to work independently is great, and his working process is well timed and paced. Throughout his time spent at Kent he engaged fantastically well with his work, his tutors and and his peers.
Alex's major project upon graduating was awarded a grade of 100% — the examiner found it difficult to find anything much that could have been improved upon! In more than a decade of teaching I have not agreed anywhere near such a high grade.
Tim Bones - University of Kent
Alex is an exceptional designer; both a pleasure and inspiration to work with. He is able to take on board any brief, fully comprehend the complexes and nuances of any brand and deliver exciting and innovative work beyond expectation. Alex shows an ability and wisdom beyond his years.
