My Story

Young, imaginative & curious can mean creative results.

I’m a young graphic designer from Vancouver, Canada, in my last year of graphic design at Chelsea College of Arts in London, UK. One of the profound experiences I have had — and to which inspired the start of aknDesign— was a trip to India at the tender age of 15. I fundraised nearly three thousand Canadian dollars for Rotary International and their fight against poliomyelitis. From that experience, I thought deeply of what could I deliver back to the world, using my imagination and creative talent. As the creator of aknDesign, I hope to match this style of ambition into the agency’s projects; the firm delivers a balance of interactive play, critical and practical problem solving into each design project. Design is our a principal focus to allow revenue and positive feedback for your business, non-profit, or personal needs. Let me show you our approach.

We’ve had the privilege to work with some awesome clients, around the world.

And even better, these clients keep coming back. We have continued to nurture relationships from DJs and artists to federally-funded research groups and NGOs.  In fact, take at a look at our reviews – honest to goodness, we don’t like cherry picking as much as the next person.

Alexander provided excellent service, both with artistic options and agile practices in working with myself as the client. I will absolutely return to Alexander for my future design needs.

aknDesign went above and beyond to give their perspective while respecting what I was looking for. Their designers were fantastic to work with.

Neuhaus Improvements

Amazing work! aknDesign didn’t just make a great looking logo, but fantastic set of business cards that are a pleasure to interact with clients. Definitely a conversation starter!

Kyla Harris, Independent Artist

aknDesign took an incredibly difficult branding challenge (a research group in a very technical and niche field) and surpassed every one of our expectations. The result is beautiful, accessible, and an expression of our work and vision.
