I’m Alex, the maker, illustrator and calligrapher behind Alexandra Illustration and Design, based in Dorchester. I love hearing the sounds of the waves, being in the sunshine, drinking tea and cuddling cats. (As you can see, I have a very trusty studio assistant!)
I feel so lucky to work from the comfort of my own studio in my home, surrounded by everything creative, where the sun shines through onto my desk and with a view that can never fail to make you smile.
Most of the time I’m working on creating prints, greetings cards, personalised gifts, and running my online shop. As well as working with clients to design, wedding stationery, new logos for small businesses, illustrated portraits or marketing materials for Central Government Projects.
I’ve always had a creative soul, and never put the pencil down since I was a little girl. I’m a self taught illustrator who is inspired by beautiful florals, mystical and magical things, and anything to do with food. I love to work with bold and dramatic colours as well as combining my lettering and illustrations. Working with both digital and traditional mediums, full of texture and small details.
The products I design are made to put a smile on your face, from the moment it hits your doormat. I love to know that what I do can bring you a little bit of joy, and who doesn’t love happy mail?! I am also a very conscious and green creative, using little to no plastic in my products or packaging.
