Reference (Craig Miles, Creative Director)
Although he has just 3 years experience, you will quickly come to realise that his talents and job knowledge extends beyond that. He has a good knowledge of various design programs, which makes him a great asset. A fast learner and uses that to the best of his ability in terms of fleshing out various types/styles of design in his day to day work. I will miss Alex in my team and I wish him all the success in his future endeavors and career opportunities.
