I'm Alexander Hesketh, a 24 year old, graphic/digital designer born in New Zealand who has recently moved over the ditch to Melbourne, Australia.

My passion for all things design gives me a wide range of technical knowledge for digital design, skills for practical tasks and also idea generation. If there's a job that needs doing i'm sure i have the skills to make it done!

My expertise lies in all Adobe applications, Blender or Webflow (+ currently self teaching coding to explore the use of javascript to project brand identity)
