Hi. I'm Alex I have an MA in Game Design and have created games for online entertainment publications such as Kerrang!, Q, Grazia, and various sports brands. I'm a multidisciplinary designer and I create interactive experiences by combining art, design and code. The main idea I encourage and practice is to take something you know and mix it with new technology and techniques to create something with a twist and personal to you. What I learnt in game design I have applied to my interactive design, website and app projects.
