Selecting a designer and buying their skills can be an art unto itself. I understand that it can be tough to integrate a new designer into your team, even if it's only temporary. You have a lot of options out there, and everyone seems to have their own strengths and weaknesses. That's why I focus on design services that elevate technology and human existence by solving problems that logic alone cannot. In other words, I strive to make things make sense.
I currently live in San Francisco, CA and work at Credit Karma. If you'd like to chat, find me on your favorite social platform @buyalex
My specialties include creative consulting, visual guidelines, small business branding, front-end development, digital design, graphic design, typography, art direction, visual direction, visual strategy, vector illustrations, vector storyboarding, raster graphics, product conceptualization, creative delegation, and visual storytelling.
A few of my tools are muji notebooks and good ink pens, Adobe Creative Suite with emphasis on Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, and AfterEffects, as well as Coda 2, Sketch3, PowerPoint, Keynote, Twine, GitHub, and more. To help with prototyping and idea generation, you’ll often find me working with cardboard, scissors, tape, and markers.
