Hi, I'm Alex Austin. I am a designer and illustrator based in Austin, Texas. Originally from the land of kickflips and microchips: San Jose, California, my art school days were spent in San Francisco where I attended the San Francisco Art Institute and the Academy of Art University. I have also lived, loved, and worked in Los Angeles, New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

By day I am Art Director for the über hip startup software company People Pattern located on the East side of Austin. By night I create beautiful branding and web presence for clients through Spectacle Creative Co. owned by myself and my wonderful wife, Jayme Austin.

Prior to People Pattern, I was an award winning graphic artist for Whole Foods Market for seven years and the lead graphic designer for the flagship location / global headquarters leading a team of six artists for three years. Throughout my career I have worked with many freelance clients creating event chalk art, apparel print design, event posters, logos and paintings.

Apparel print design is a distinct passion of mine. I am strongly influenced by modern design trends, pop art, film, music and comic books.

When I'm not on the job, you can find me skateboarding, hiking and having art time with my kids, Ruby and Elvis.
