My name is Alejandro Alvarez. I am a Dominican graphic designer and photographer based in Brooklyn, NY. Currently on my Junior Year at Pratt Institute I'm focusing on Graphic Design but will forever be interested in and inspired by Illustration, Lettering, Photography and Silkscreen. Most of my work features my own practice of these disciplines.
I was introduced from a really young age to the world of design, thanks to my grandfather, one of the most recognized advertisers in the Dominican Republic. Since then, I've become fascinated throughout my life by anything and everything that is visually appealing to me.
Some cool stuff have happened since I started college, for example, my logo design for 'America’s Greatest Heart Run and Walk' was used in 2017 to help raise over one million dollars for the American Heart Association. I recently won two 'GDUSA Graphic Design Award' and received the 'Ryan Aumiller Memorial Award' at PrattMWP for my 'outstanding progress and professionalism in Communications Design.
So things are going pretty good right now, but I'm still looking for more experience in the real design world, that's where this website comes in. I'm hoping that someone out there digs my work and wants to give me the opportunity of a lifetime? But other than that I love being inspired by others and I hope my work inspires you as well.
