A LITTLE ABOUT ALECIA

I am a designer at heart and by trade — I live and breathe it. Design touches people in a deep and profound way. Everything we do is built on communication; we should strive to do it well.

When I'm not busy creating, I'm on the hunt for adventures that take me away from the desk and on to my feet. I am endlessly inspired by everyone and everything around me. It's what keeps me motivated me to be a better person and designer.

In short, please feel free to reach out for design assistance, advice, or simply to chat. I welcome any and all opportunities to connect.
