About me

Hi, my name is Aleks.

From childhood, I’ve been immersed in creativity, designing activity books for my little brother and exploring various arts and crafts.

This passion led me to pursue studies at an art college, a decision I consider one of the best in my life. Although my journey eventually took me into the field of archaeology, the foundation of skills and creativity from my art education remained invaluable.

After years in archaeology, I returned to design, joining an archaeological illustration team. Over nine years, I advanced to Senior Illustrator and Website Coordinator, leading the redesign of the company’s website and managing its online presence.

In 2023, I began freelancing as a Web and Graphic Designer, driven by a desire to assist small businesses and non-profits in enhancing their digital presence.
