Sonrisa

Noun

I'm Alex, your lead designer and creative director. I have been working in the creative business for the past 10 years, loving every minute of it. I fill my work with modern typography, lots of white space, and trendy color schemes. When I'm not hunched over my Mac you can find me at the dog park with my dog Oakley, or trying a new restaurant with friends.  

Hello,

As the founder and lead designer for Sonrisa Studio, my goal is to create effective marketing tools that stand out from the crowd. I promise you contemporary, simplistic designs that will get your business noticed. 

I currently live outside of Chicago with my husband, Matt, and our daughter Emerson, and dog Oakley. When I'm not hunched over my Mac, you can find me trying a new restaurant in the city, decorating the house, or reading a juicy thriller novel.
