Alex Hughes

Hi, I’m Alex Hughes. I’m a graphic designer from San Antonio, Texas now living and working in Dallas.

Travel has always been a huge source of inspiration to me, and I strive to capture the essence of my travels through printmaking. 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.

Making a new print

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.

I hope that my prints help others tell their 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.
