Alex Holton | Communications Designer

Alex is a community-driven graphic designer from Richmond, Virginia who finds joy in experimenting and finding solutions to wicked problems. After teaching himself photoshop at a young age, he studied design at George Mason University and his learning hasn’t slowed down since. While still a student, Alex gained a great deal of experience from doing editorial and web design at Project Design Company for clients like National Geographic and AARP, and helping run social media campaigns at Meredith Xcelerated Marketing (MXM) for clients like AMC and Fandango. His experience and skills as a graphic designer allow him to rapidly build prototypes and communicate concepts in the field so researchers can learn what to iterate on.


What I Love


What Inspires Me

Anyone who has a deep passion and has made it their goal to pursue that very passion. Also, this more of me being jealous, but mountain men and women (I don’t discriminate) also fuel every fiber of my being.


A Favorite Moment at Peer Insight

It’s hard to name one specific memory as my favorite; considering the seemingly endless number of hilarious and enjoyable team building moments we share with each other all the time. Every birthday and work anniversary celebration that we have just warms my heart beyond belief. Having everyone take some time out of their day to celebrate their peers is truly a blessing. The days where two or more of us happen to wear our Peer Insight t-shirts always results in twinsie photos being taken and remembered for the future. Taking a short walk to the National Mall on a beautiful day to share lunch and stories with each other? Priceless.
