i write about the delightful.

This blog began as a place to interview interesting friends I was meeting during college. As my life grew, my content grew with it. The Delighted People is now a journal for travel, thoughts, lots (and lots) of pictures, and artistic endeavors. This site is also home to my design and photography work.



here's the official stuff.

I'm Alex, a born and bred Alabamian. I earned my BFA in graphic design from Samford University and have since worked for Hope Heals, the International Mission Board, and a bunch of freelance clients. My most recent gig was as a media specialist at a non-profit in London, England. Engagement, portrait, and product photography have also made it on my resume.

My skill sets include identity design, web design, social media graphics, motion graphics, animation, illustration, hand-lettering, and print design.

Want to collaborate with me on a project or photo shoot? Let's talk ideas, timeframe, and prices.
