Alex is a designer and writer living in Japan.

Raised in North Carolina, she is currently living in Japan. Her experience in the branding, museum, and trade show industries has taught her to see the world through a typographic lens.


Her first travel blog, 'A Place in Prague', began as a way to keep her parents informed while studying watercolor abroad. Now, she writes 'Travel Typography' to document good design worldwide.

She's currently writing two books, editing podcasts, teaching herself piano, and creating videos for her (and her husband's) Youtube Channel "Alex and Will Travel".
