Hello, I'm Alex! 

Looking at experiences from the product level as well as zooming out and taking a holistic, systems level view is a skill that I constantly exercise. My design process is flexible and puts a large emphasis on the dialogue between research and prototyping. 

Whether its my own project, a friend's, or a stranger's, I jump at any opportunity to collaborate and learn from others. Great design happens when team members work together and inspire each other. That's where the magic happens. And I want to be a part of making magic, inspiring users, and creating memorable experiences. 

If you'd like to chat about my work, design ethos, or necklace line, feel free to send me an email at apalatuc@andrew.cmu.edu.
