Oh, hello!

My name is Alex and I solve problems.

I have well rounded and well developed skillset - web development skills coupled with solid design fundamentals. I believe in the power of a clean user interface. I believe in pixel perfect design, snapping to guides and numbers divisible by 12. I trust photoshop's info palette with my life (and your brief).

I bring an unquenchable, relentless passion for knowledge and experience to the table. If I don't know how to do something, you can be sure that I will not stop until I've figured it out. I live for a challenge, design or otherwise (but in this case, design!), and will pursue my goals until they are completed to the very highest standards.

Design thrills me, and I would treasure the opportunity to be a part of your team.


I've picked up some good tricks.

  • Design

    I've created print ready artwork for business cards, flyers, billboards, brochures and booklets.

  • Develop

    I work primarily with wordpress to create kick-ass webshops, content managed sites and portfolios.

  • Brand

    I've created memorable brands for startups and established businesses, for both internal and external deployment.

  • Cooperate

    I love the challenge of working in teams to conceptualise, design, develop and deliver projects on time.

  • Communicate

    I have always contacted clients directly through email or phonecall to keep them informed and happy.

  • Train

    I've taken clients through the Wordpress backend, as well as written detailed training documents.
