This studio is all about style with intention, thoughtful design solutions and inspirational brand development.  I will deliver to you purposeful brands that not only represent your business, but you as a person.  

So where did the name come from? Sonrisa, the Spanish word for smile, represents the overall goal of this studio, to invoke positivity and creativity through beautiful designs, and maybe even generate some smiles.  When you partner with me, you will not only be getting impressive designs, but also, the creative direction to help your business thrive.  

Sonrisa Studio is an online design studio collaboratively working with passionate people to create professional branding and web design.

I'm Alex, your lead designer and creative director. I have been working in the creative business for the past 10 years, loving every minute of it. I fill my work with modern typography, lots of white space, and trendy color schemes. When I'm not hunched over my Mac you can find me at the dog park with my dog Oakley, or trying a new restaurant with friends.  

Hello,

I'm Alex, your lead designer and creative director.  I have been working in the creative field for the past 10 years filling my work with modern typography, bold graphics, and trendy color schemes. My goal as a designer is to create effective marketing tools that stand out from the crowd. I promise you contemporary, simplistic designs that will get your business noticed. 

I currently live outside of Chicago with my husband, Matt, and our adorable dog, Oakley. When I'm not hunched over my Mac, you can find me trying a new restaurant, strolling the aisles of HomeGoods, or reading a juicy thriller novel.

The process

Design 

Deliver 

Decisions 

In the initial stage, we will discuss your visions and goals for the project.  Once the scope of the project has been determined, I will draft a formal proposal for your approval.

Discovery 

In the discovery stage I’ll be learning a lot about you, your work, and what matters to you. I will send an online questionnaire so I can better understand the goals for the project. 

Here I will take what I learned during the discovery stage to craft the designs that embody the goals we set in the beginning stages. After receiving the first design we will work through two-three rounds of revisions to perfect the project.

Once the designs are completed, I will provide you with all the necessary files you need to successfully launch your new brand or website. Now its up to you to show off your newly designed look.
