Alexander Wong | Multi-disciplinary Creative

I'm a multi-disciplinary creative who practices industrial design, brand design and photography.

Bio

 

From Jamaica W.I., his creative journey started in 2014 when he discovered photography. His ability to compose honest and straightforward images with a wealth of emotion in a documentary style is chief among his assets as a contemporary creative.

 

Alexander is constantly exploring the intersection of design and culture. Powered by design research, user input and the need for continuous ideation, he is usually found viewing design trends, world news and aviation with an espresso on hand.

Statement

 

"I utilise design thinking and practices to explore where culture can meet design. Thoughtful design has a history of being monopolised and inaccessible. Integration of culture and diversity into design will result in a much needed shift in the design world.

 

My ultimate goal is to aid the advancement of the welfare of our global community through creative solutions grounded in skill, experience, culture, and sustainable practices."
