Hi, I'm Alex
As the daughter of one of the original Madison Avenue Advertising men (Mad Men), I am the product of the advertising world from the start.

I was a self-taught graphic designer for almost 28 years until I went back to the Academy of Art University during COVID 19 to get my Masters of Arts degree.

Voted Best Graphic Designer in Ojai, California for six years, it has been my honor and pleasure to work with clients locally and nationally on their marketing materials, both print and web.

While technology continues to develop and grow, good design never goes out of style. 

I'll be opening my doors for new business again in June, 2023. Contact me today and let's make something amazing. 
To continue to collaborate and partner with clients, other designers, and my community, in order to deliver creative solutions for all.
