Alix is a freelance graphic designer, illustrator, and sign painter currently living a life in LA that is about as close to New Girl as real life can get. She graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in 2014 from the Sam Fox School of Art & Design, majoring in graphic design and illustration. After graduating, she designed cool things for companies like Converse, Urban Outfitters, and about a dozen start-ups and small businesses. She began to specialize in restaurant identity and print design while waiting tables in Boston, and helped open 3 restaurants as the lead (a.k.a. the only) graphic designer.
After 3 years, she started to feel the screens melt her brain. So she dropped everything and took her typography obsession to Los Angeles, where she enrolled in Los Angeles Trade Tech College to study the traditional craft of Sign Painting under Doc Guthrie, a legendary journeyman in the field. She's picked up gold leafing, window and wall lettering, cutting custom wood signs, painting really straight lines, and How To Wake Up At 6 AM.
Alix continues to work both in restaurants and with restaurants, bars, specialty shops, and small businesses to brand, re-brand, enhance, and streamline the experience they provide. In doing so she has become an amateur interior designer, apparel designer, and art curator. She constantly seeks mentors and learning tools in those fields to hone her skills and provide the best for her clients, whom she loves very much.
