Hi, I’m Alexandra.
As a graphic designer,
I’m drawn to strongly conceptual work. I enjoy translating complex messages into accessible imagery.
I respond to the principle that good design is for everyone, and so I ended up working with diverse clients in government, media, nonprofits, and small businesses. I have a soft, soft spot for advocacies, especially environmental conservation. Beyond social impact, my practice spans corporate materials, teaching, and commissioned art.
My areas of expertise are:
- Print and Editorial Design. Designing eye-catching covers and coherent layouts.
- Branding and Identity. Giving your organization, event, or exhibition a face.
- Features Writing. Crafting children’s stories, presentations, and your next big project.
As an artist,
I favor playfulness and an experimental approach to expressing ideas and emotions. I often return to printmaking, cartooning, and digital art, taking inspiration from the natural world.
My work branches out in the following ways:
- Editorial Illustration. Distilling ideas into visual metaphors.
- Children’s Books Illustration. Drawing animals since 1991.
- Cartooning. Engaging life with humor.
- Printmaking. Exploring the freedom of black & white. See more at Rubber Ducky Stamp Co.
- Zines. Experimenting on the ultimate blank canvas.
I’m available for commissions and projects.
