Alexandra Vasquez Valois

Visual Designer

Hi! I'm Alex

Through hands-on education and experience I've developed strong technical design skills that are implemented from conception through completion. Knowledgeable on tech jargon and interested in the newest applications of UX, UI, VR, AR, and 3D design, I'm capable of competence across multiple disciplines.

The design philosophy I follow states that the aesthetics of design can’t be preconceived, they’re the result of extensive research, an understanding of the standards, and a vision for any foreseeable future needs.

Type enthusiast, fine art practitioner, and exhibition design fanatic, I'm passionate about the power of visual communication and language. Always seeking for projects that will create a positive social impact, and further the opportunities for the growth of STEAM.
