As a Nor­wich Uni­ver­sity of the Arts grad­u­ate, Alex Fox­ley was mid­way through his com­mer­cial photography de­gree when he thought he was bet­ter suited to a ca­reer in il­lus­tra­tion and graphic de­sign. "I spent the next year liv­ing and work­ing in sunny Barcelona," he says, "build­ing up my port­fo­lio and gain­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.” It paid off, with Fox­ley se­cur­ing work at agency Hey Stu­dio, where he worked with clients like Uniqlo and Barcelona City Coun­cil.

Since then, he's taken his love for pat­terns, bright colours and bold line work back to the UK. “I am now work­ing as a free­lance il­lus­tra­tor,” re­veals Fox­ley. “Soon I'll be work­ing on ex­cit­ing col­lab­o­ra­tions and putting more out in the phys­i­cal world.” See more: www.alex­fox­ley.com
