Alexander J. Disney
I am an intelligent and creative thinker with an eye for design. I am able to generate ideas and evolve them into solutions, solutions to creative problems. One of my most powerful attributes, is my ability to present clearly and effectively. I generate ideas and communicate them, within a team and to clients. I am driven by my passion and enthusiasm for ideas, to create visually stimulating solutions, which effectively communicate to a given market.

I was invited to present my ideas and their relation to creative solutions for business to the International Entrepreneurship Educator's Programme, this was well received by both lecturers and designers. I have also undertaken design work for the 'Funny Films' company, to help create a set for an ITV mini series. I took a lead role in educating visual communications students at foundation level, using creative techniques to aid their learning. In addition to this I have produced creative work for clients such as Brecon Carreg and Fenchurch. I was honoured to be a finalist in the fresh design awards in 2007
