I'm a designer and illustrator (and occasional maker) based out of Richmond, Virginia. In college, I specialized in both design and figure illustration and started my freelancing project, Constantly Alexandra Design & Illustration, immediately after school. When I moved to Richmond, I ended up in an agency role doing both design and account management and have spent the last six years building that hybrid skillset. I'm able to build relationships with clients and take more ownership of the management of my projects. I love a spreadsheet almost as much as I love an artboard, and this hybrid skillset has served me well in my career.
By day, I'm a designer specializing in small business branding and front-end web design. I love organization and structure and I'm always looking for a way to create efficiencies in our design, development and client/partner management processes.
During my spare time, I love being a little more hands-on. I take on painting commissions for baby nurseries or kid's rooms and custom projects for clients. I practice hand-lettering and love to create art from a quote or a lyrics. I've also spent time creating wedding paper goods ranging from invitations to menus to wedding programs and thank you notes.
I believe that life is more interesting when you're busy. I believe that creating a painting or a paper good helps build a memory that will last a lifetime. And I love seeing the impact and lasting effects of my work, long after the project is over. My work is all about creating paper goods for life's greatest moments — whether that's a wedding, a new baby, the remembrance of a loved one, a new business adventure, or a celebration of success.
