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.

An exceptionally talented young man who thinks deeply and deconstructs problems, Alex’s unique worldview enables him to get to the heart of any challenge and form credible creative solutions.
