    Hello, there!
    My name is Alison, and I’m a graphic designer, typophile and bookworm from Toronto. I recently graduated from OCAD University with a major in Graphic Design and a minor in English. Clearly, I like words—a lot, and designing with them is my specialty. I have completed projects ranging from custom wedding invitations to corporate identity, one-off posters to entire brands, and each is its own kind of adventure.

    Alison did a fabulous job creating my wedding invitations. She was incredibly flexible in accommodating all of our last minute changes and modifications. Her creativity and attention to client needs/wants was evident in several of the design prototypes she created. Alison did a fantastic job making our vision come to life, in time and on budget!

    Alison was absolutely great to work with. She provided excellent, focused designs and helpful instructions for implementing. She was quick to respond and send any changes to the design that was requested. I will definitely contact her for future design jobs and would recommend for anyone seeking a quality designer.
