I focus on the spectrum of design solutions for small to mid-sized businesses with clear social, cultural and ecological relevance.

Alex Plunkett, Art Director and Designer

I was born in Australia yet have enjoyed most of my upbringing and teenage years in Europe. After finishing high school in Hamburg, I returned to Australia to study communication design. Eventually, I was dragged back to Berlin by the vibrant culture, music and pursuit of a career as a designer. Here, I continue to design and create in print and digital.

The work I am most passionate about is, challenging projects with clear social, cultural and ecological relevance and trying to make the world a more exciting and fairer place.

Profession

My experience includes developing the brand voice for small and globally recognised companies. Making sure that the tonality is on-brand in every visual element and every user flow, is essential to creating a cohesive and lasting impression with the audience.

I place huge importance on the uniqueness and usability of digital products in order to create an excellent user experience. From sitemap, walk-throughs and user-journeys to website, app or VR-game, I can support in the conceptual phase of complex projects and develop entire projects using common frameworks like WordPress.

My experience covers the conception and production of short-films, animations, voice-overs, music and sound designs as well as meeting a range of educational, cultural, social and marketing needs. Communication on fixed timelines is vital to creating engaging environments and emotional interactions.

Whether it’s a brochure, flyer, booklet or poster, my goal is to find the most suitable print products for your communication needs. Selecting special, high quality materials and sustainable production methods – while keeping your communication on point – is something I feel very passionate about. My experience also encompasses the conception and coordination of exhibits as well as the development of identities for festivals and small events.
