SAVANNAH COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN BFA IN GRAPHIC DESIGN

Alex Gough is currently either: learning clever things, collaborating, or connecting dots. So far, he’s narrowed it down to a fascination with visual interaction design because it offers a wonderful way of thinking about people’s behavior and how it can be affected by the finest details. Alex is fortunate to have spent time in many places around the world, from the mountains of Bulgaria to the rainforests of Rwanda. His friends see this as him being “fancy,” but he likes to think it helps him find empathy. He is finishing up a BFA. Writing these two short paragraphs was odd for Alex, mainly because of all the illeism. But there is a comedic element to it all, he supposes, and hopefully they were insightful for you.
