THE MODERN COLLEGE OF DESIGN
Alexia Woodward is an adventure-seeking creative who’s always down for a challenge and ready to see where her work takes her. Currently, she is a third-year student with a focus in everything digital. Her desire to create started early, and she began to concentrate on print design and photography in high school. Alexia has since developed a passion for web design and UI/UX. She serves as the Community Outreach Leader on the Student Senate and President of the Student Optimist Club. She has also participated on the National Student Advertising Competition team as the Plans Book Director in 2021 and is now leading the team as Creative Director in the 2022 competition. Alexia loves to travel and explore new places both near and far. What makes those trips even better is when she can take her dog along.
IF THERE WERE NO BARRIERS AND CONSTRAINTS, WHAT PROJECT WOULD YOU WANT TO WORK ON?
A dream of mine is to open a non-profit organization with the overall objective of helping people. There are several causes and initiatives I have a passion for, and this would allow me to take my love for design and use it as a way to give back. Another thing that has intrigued me is the film and music industry. The stories and the cinematography are a source of inspiration, and it’s an area that I would love to design for.
WHAT ARE YOU READING/LISTENING TO/WATCHING?
I’m always listening to some Spotify playlist. Right now, it’s a toss-up between Taylor Swift’s newest album, anything from Quinn XCII, or my personal playlist, Off the Beaten Path, filled with songs that aren’t considered mainstream. I’m always down to rewatch any episode from my all-time favorite show, One Tree Hill.
WHO IS SOMEONE YOU LOOK UP TO IN YOUR FIELD?
Through a class project, I had the opportunity to speak with a German designer, Susanne Weiskopf, Creative Director of UX and BX at .21 design studio. We had a conversation about launching her own design studio, something that I would love to do someday. Since then, I have followed their work, gaining inspiration both creatively and personally.
