My name is Alex Hughes. I’m a graphic designer from Texas obsessed with traveling and illustrating my experiences through printmaking. I love to read, play soccer, and snuggle my rescue cat, Athena.


When I was little, I loved art and dreamed of traveling to faraway places. I spent my days drawing, painting, and collecting objects from around the world. I especially liked collecting painted animals and dolls from different countries.


When it came time for college, I decided to study graphic design. I graduated from Texas Christian University with my BFA, where I was honored to have my work recognized in both regional and national design competitions. Soon after, I moved to Dallas for a graphic design job, and that’s where I met my husband, Philip.


Most days, you’ll find me sketching in our small apartment with my cat, Athena, curled at my feet. I still collect objects from around the world, and love to stay inspired by textiles and folk art gathered from our travels.

I feel lucky to be able to combine my love of travel with my love of design, and create work that helps people commemorate the places they’ve visited and the memories they made there.
