Hi, I’m Alex Hughes. I’m a graphic designer from Texas now living and working in Dallas. I love to read—especially books about psychology—draw, and snuggle my cat, Athena. Travel has always been a huge source of inspiration to me, and I strive to capture the essence of my travels through printmaking. 

[/vc_column_text][eltd_separator position=”center”][vc_column_text]In college I studied graphic design, and graduated from Texas Christian University with my BFA. During this time I was honored to have my work recognized in both regional and national design competitions. I was also incredibly lucky to do a lot of traveling while I was in school.

 

Sometimes I traveled with family, sometimes with friends, and sometimes I went alone. Every trip I took was a huge growing experience for me. I learned not only about the culture and the people I visited, but about myself. I learned that I could be brave when I needed to be. I learned to make friends with strangers. I learned to be self-sufficient and figure things out. Traveling is easily the most empowering thing I’ve ever done.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][eltd_separator position=”center”][eltd_separator position=”center”][eltd_image_gallery type=”slider” autoplay=”3″ slide_animation=”slide” pretty_photo=”yes” navigation=”yes” pagination=”yes” images=”11923,11884,11436,11900,11558,11374,12046,11924,11170″ image_size=”thumbnail”][eltd_separator position=”center”][vc_column_text]Today, when I design a new print, I remember how it felt to navigate the subway in Japanese, or to cautiously drive on the Autobahn in Germany, or the time when I got lost in Florence and befriended the owner of a paper shop. These are the experiences that made me who I am.

 

My hope is that my prints help others tell their own stories by reminding them significant moments in their own lives. A print can represent a honeymoon trip to Venice, a solo trip to France, a husband who is from Copenhagen, or a memory of home for a college-bound son or daughter. I think the places we visit hold powerful memories for us, and I make prints because it helps me hold onto some of those experiences. I love when a piece of mine connects with someone else in a similarly powerful way.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][eltd_separator position=”center”][eltd_image_gallery type=”slider” autoplay=”3″ slide_animation=”slide” pretty_photo=”yes” navigation=”yes” pagination=”yes” images=”12077,12078,12024,12076,12074,12073,12072,12070,12075,12071″ image_size=”thumbnail”][eltd_separator position=”center”][vc_column_text]
