As a Communication student, Alex knows the importance of expressing ideas visually. Currently, they’re completing a Publishing minor, which has allowed them to explore the world of design in a modern, academic environment alongside their work opportunities–such as this book they designed, printed, and bound! They’re most familiar with graphic design, but they’ve also worked with print and video.

Check out their most recent design projects above. To the left, a page with FORMZINE, a charity project, where their graphic for poet Avalonian was a digital-exclusive page. To the right, Alex’s own business card, which they designed themself.

Alex also does all their own album art in their work as Fairything.

They’ve done social media graphics for the local nonprofit, posAbilities, as well as a national queer youth outreach organization, QSpeak (pictured above and below, respectively). On top of this, they also completed a UX course at their university.

Alex is familiar with a variety of design software: Adobe Suite, Canva, and Figma are staples of their repertoire. When it comes to video, they also use Shotcut alongside some Adobe products.

Overall, Alex loves the possibilities of visual design and communication, and hopes to continue using it to share important messages with the world.

Alex also has some experience holding a camera: they’ve had short films shared at various local festivals (a video-specific page is coming soon), and filmed educational content for local disability advocacy group posAbilities. Plus, they were an event photographer for the opening of Mintage Mall in 2018, and had some of their photography published in Soultalk Magazine in 2020!
