Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Alec Schmidt

Art Director / Designer

I help clarify and bring meaning to my clients brands with a clean and modern approach. I think a brand should be strategic, planned and without any unnecessary elements. I believe that no one should be turned away from obtaining design services because of a tight budget, or lack of resources. I would like to help the world with my work.

Blogs & Such

My latest blog / project is somewhat experimental. I've been creating a 600px by 600px piece of artwork every day. This first month I'm only allowing myself to us simple shapes (Line, Circle, Triangle, Square, etc...) and color. Without being able us any textures, effects, or gradients I'm looking to create artistically interesting arrangements, patterns and imagery. Visit the project at www.iamthequickbrownfox.tumblr.com
