Alex is a designer and writer living in Germany.

Alex is a designer with a passion for anthropology, culture, and storytelling.


Raised in North Carolina, she is currently living in Bavaria, Germany. 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.


Alex enjoys writing most about typography and how it is used to communicate ideas, stories, emotions, and attitudes of unique cultures and destinations. Her entries are inspired by local museums, artists, branding, tours or landmarks.
