Typography

The art of letters is a big deal for her.

Sometimes, she even hand-letters the work she does. Letters have a personality and vibe that tell people how to feel about what they are viewing. It is an important part to any brand identity!

Behind the Scenes

Behind the scenes, you can find Alley Jean working away in her studio. Half of her studio is for the digital work she does. She loves techie gadgets and has things like the Blue digital microphone, to her favorite Wacom tablet that she draws and digitally paints and letters with, to her Sony A55 camera.

Venture on over to the bookcase for tons of old art history books, nick-nacks, old rolling stone magazines from the ’60s and ’70s, fossils, nature guides, poetry, fiction books from the likes of Anne Rice and Dan Brown, alongside science textbooks about minerals, geography, and black holes.

Picture watercolor sketches and paintings pinned deliberately to the wall and lots of orchids, cacti, and bonsai are taking in the sun rays every day.

Anything that feels like inspiration is neatly put in its place here to give my projects a life that is created with curiosity and fun! There is always a kraft sketchbook nearby for notes, sketches, wordplay ideas and more!

Proceed on over to my art area which starts with my glass drafting table and white lights lamps. The white light is important because it is where I check the color of my work and make sure it is quality and exactly what I am looking for. The glass is great for quick 1-color watercolor sketches for brainstorming before I head into the computer world. “I definitely have a “thing” for traditional graphic design processes and root my projects in lots of those ideals, values, and solid research sessions. I even head to the library on a monthly basis. A well-rounded approach to everything I do is me being a perfectionist but also someone who genuinely cares about my clients and the integrity I back for the brands I work for.

She is also inspired by going to concerts, museums, art galleries, small markets, antique stores, historic homes, the movies, hiking, lakeside, bonfires, playing acoustic guitar, listening to Zepplin, and walking the streets of downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan.
