Who I Am

Hi there! My name is Alejandro Almanza. I’m a creative professional from Grand Rapids Michigan who specializes in web design and graphic design. I graduated from Grand Valley State University with a degree in Advertising and Public Relations. Since then I’ve gained experience in graphic design, web design advertising, and marketing. As a creative professional, I believe adding value to a brand doesn’t only consist of improving the look of the brand. I believe the real value comes from improving the feeling a consumer gets when thinking of the brand.

My main focus is to create the best user experience possible. I'm both a graphic designer and a web designer which means I take charge of the entire process, from design, to development, to testing.
So let’s connect and get your consumers excited about your brand!
