Hi there,

I’m Alex Melville, an independent designer.

What do I do?

I work with start-ups and businesses of all sizes, helping them tell their stories through effective design.

Sometimes, I join forces with existing studios and agencies as a freelance specialist or bring together experts I trust on large-scale projects.

So, what do I actually do?

Design Thinking .
Creative Direction.
Art Direction.
Visual Design.
Motion Graphics.
Brand & Identity.

Where am I based?

I work mostly from my studio in Cambridge. However, I do enjoy the odd journey into London or Europe to catch up with in-house teams and clients—when absolutely necessary.

My work schedule can also be adjusted to team up remotely with European and east-coast US-based teams.

What interests me?

When I am not working, I’m spending quality time with my family, discovering new places, capturing moments from unique perspectives, shredding the skatepark, and collecting designer toys.

I also enjoy taking time out to think about real-world problems such as; philosophical, technological, scientific, and political.

Well, what are you waiting for?

Well, since you’ve come this far, 
why not take a journey with me...

My story began in 1987—I was born and raised in Walthamstow, a quiet corner of northeast London. Growing up in the nineties seemed amazing, playing awesome 8-bit cartridge-based computer games. I was also allowed to have as many pets as I liked, all being Tamogochi’s of course, they actually taught me that it’s bloody hard work to look after something.

I remember having a computer at a young age, taking it apart, and learning how it worked.
During my time at school, I found myself moving further from the computing courses that I found too repetitive, to the arts which I found to be more expressive.

With a BA Degree in Graphic Design hot off the press, I felt ready to take on the world.
In 2011 I joined NKD as a creative, they had a relatively small office space in the heart of London, with an inspiring team
I was creating animated presentations in Flash, and whole suites of printed communications to go with it.

In 2016 I decided to leave permanent employment — field by the birth of my first daughter — and I set up a solo studio—Design Planet.
