"After I left my position as Director of Channel Partnerships for an international advertising agency, I opened up my own real estate brokerage firm and consulted with Alex on every aspect of branding and marketing for my company. In advertising, I learned the importance of branding, product development, marketing and relationship building. Alex exceeded all of my expectations in those areas."
“Alex is an innovative designer with tremendous capabilities. His professionalism and the attention he pays to important details makes him the kind of Creative Director who is a friend to the QA process. His know-how makes him an asset to any team looking to deliver a great-looking, quality product.”
“Alex was a true asset to have as a co-worker. Always conscious of the "big picture" when creating his designs, Alex held himself to the highest of standards not only in aesthetics, but also in maximizing the marketing impact of every project he worked on. I learned a great deal from Alex both on a technical level, and it was also an inspiration to work with someone so pro-active and driven. He was sorely missed when he left, and any company would be lucky to have him.”
"Alex’s creativity is unsurpassed, but why I really enjoy working with him is that I can trust him to manage his own projects. He is detail oriented and makes sure the project gets done on-time and is not afraid to communicate if he detects and issue or needs clarification. I am always in good hands with Alex… my highest recommendation!"
