Personal Profile


Hello, my name is Alex Dickson. I’m a Graphic Designer and Illustrator based in Bournemouth on the, occasionally sunny, South Coast of the UK. I graduated from UCA Maidstone in 2012 with a BA(Hons) degree in Graphic Design: Visual Communication.

Name: Alex Dickson Address: 43 Cynthia Road, Poole, Dorset, BH12 3JE Phone: 07972321434 Email: Website: Twitter: Blog:

My inspiration comes from the rough textures and imperfections that make up the cities we live in. When exploring an idea I instinctively search for those hidden intricacies that define it. Encapsulating an expression, a gesture, or even a stern look from a passer by. My skills are rooted in Illustration and Print, yet have expanded to other areas of Design; such as Information Design, Photography and Animation.
