My name is Alejandro Alvarez. I am a Dominican graphic designer and photographer based in Brooklyn, NY. Currently on my Senior Year at Pratt Institute I'm focusing on Graphic Design but will forever be interested in and inspired by Illustration, Lettering, Photography and Printmaking. Most of my work features my own practice of these disciplines.
I was introduced from a really young age to the world of design, thanks to my grandfather, one of the most recognized advertisers in the Dominican Republic. Since then, I've become fascinated throughout my life by anything and everything that is visually appealing to me.
Some of the highlights in my career include two 'GDUSA' Graphic Design Awards and winning the 'Ryan Aumiller Memorial Award' at PrattMWP for my 'outstanding progress and professionalism in Communications Design. Also, my logo for 'America’s Greatest Heart Run and Walk' was used in 2017 to help raise over one million dollars for the American Heart Association.
