Hello.

Alright?

I’m Alexi.

I’m not going to write this in the 3rd person. I have no idea why people do that.

First and foremost …

I’m an Art Director

By profession. It’s what I studied and how I’ve been making money for the last 11 years and for the most part, it’s what I really really enjoy doing.

I’m a Creative Director.

For the last 2 years at least. Working with and helping build teams, overseeing work, developing it and getting it out the door.

I love working with other people but very excited to get my own hands ‘dirty’ again. It’s something I’ve missed and something I’m looking forward to.

I love painting.

Among other things but It’s what’s got me into this mess. A love of graffiti from an early age led to me studying design, then becoming an art director.

And to be honest I think I enjoy it more now than I ever have.

And I’m open for work.

A ‘creative gun’ for hire. Get in touch. I’m excited for some new projects.
