Isn't it the best feeling when you struggle, give it your all, power through and come out successful in the end? Knowing that you can't sit back and wait for the easy way out. To be able to tell yourself, you deserve it?
This is how I take on every opportunity and challenge that comes my way. I look at it like a mountain to summit. I go into every project with everything I've got, knowing that giving up is not an option. I am a designer with a love for the outdoors and action sports. I understand that I succeed as a designer when I surround myself with my passions in life. I never turn down the opportunity to try and learn about something new. I am open to ideas, advice and criticisms about my work, because I know that you will not grow as a designer if you don't at least try.
My name is Alexandra Butterbrodt. Graphic Design; is my thing. I have a Bachelors of Science in Visual Communication (aka graphic design) from Arizona State University.
My skills in Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop have developed over the past 5 years that I have been working with the programs. I currently work in CS4 version of Adobe Creative Suite. I have experience in typography, book design, layout and construction, exhibit design, information design, branding, logos and poster design. I love being hands on and being a part of the design. I work well on any stage in the process of a project; from developing a concept to the conclusion and construction of the final product. I see every project through to the end paying close attention to each detail. My range of style allows me to design across-the-board for any project that may come my way.
In the summer of 2010, I interned for a full service design and advertising agency, Moxie Sozo, based in Boulder, Colorado. During my time there I was put on a variety of projects, that ranged from web design to packaging design. I was required to manage multiple projects at a time, while collaborating with fellow designers and meeting strict deadlines. I have also designed for several freelance jobs and assisted with the design for a 125 page conference book for the American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education.
