Skilled designer with an MA in Graphic Design and Visual Communications
MA in Graphic Design and Visual Communications.
I live in Zagreb, Croatia and have gained professional experience working at design studios and advertising agencies. I work as an independent graphic designer.
I was born on July 11th, 1981 in Zagreb, Croatia under a full name Aleksandra Bilušić. I lived in Algiers for a couple of years when I was a kid and then moved back to Zagreb. After finishing elementary school, I chose the Fashion and Design High school of Zagreb and graduated in 2000. In 2001 I began studying at the School of Design, Faculty of Architecture, University of Zagreb and achieved an MA degree in 2006. During the studies I worked as a graphic design freelancer, by myself and being part of creative teams with my colleagues. My photographs have been exhibited at various galleries, some of which are Galerija ULUPUH and Fotogalerija KIC in Zagreb and Galerija Batana in Rovinj.
With a solid foundation in diverse artistic and technical subjects I have achieved a wide education in various fields beside design – in arts and art history, both classical and digital photography, various other mediums, TV and video, psychology and marketing including branding and advertising.
I worked as a designer and art director and have also worked in fields of event management, ad campaign visuals for various media types and for various clients and as well gained expertise in organization, filming, production and post-production. Being an art director included occasional copywriting as well. I am fluent in English and have a passive knowledge of German and Italian.
I am a Mac-addict currently in possession of 7 Macs and 3 iPhones, including a total balance of 9 Mighty Mice and a Magic Mouse. My other passion is my car – a boxer-engined Alfa Romeo. And yes, I am a cat person. With a total balance of 2 cats and occasional orphaned kittens.

Some of my recent designs
See how everyone just loves working with me... Yaaay! :)
Alex delivered everything we asked for, and educated us in the process. Her visual sense is compelling and her ability to translate our words into a graphic treatment provided a great balance of whimsy and professionalism which also extends to her feeling for typography. Our partners, customers, and associates have complimented us on visual identity she created for us. Alex interpreted our words into an excellent visual that captures our creativity and delivers the visual explanation of “New,” “Enterprise,” and “Factory”. Alex won us over with her logo design for the New Enterprise Factory and she’s now our designer of record.
Our requirements were simple – we needed someone that could translate our words into a graphic design that communicated our ideas. Sounds easy, but it’s not – unless you’re a graphic design guru. That’s what Alex is. She’s amazing. They say a picture is worth 1000 words. Creating that picture is beyond most of us, but it comes naturally to Alex. She’s able to listen, translate and create. I, literally, don’t have the words to express the talent, creativity and expertise Alex brings to a project. She’s outstanding.
Alex immersed herself fully in the project and was able to grasp very quickly the essence of what I was looking for. She has been very patient and didn’t lose her enthusiasm through multiple executions until we got it just right. Her strength is in her ability to capture essence through a simple execution. It’s been more then 8 months since she did our logo and every time I look at it I like it more and more. Alex comes with my highest recommendation!
Alex designed a logo for our new business. Her design was fantastic and has been great for the business. She was also very helpful supplying small changes we needed to the logo, and also giving her thoughts on our website design. We will definitely keep Alex in mind for future projects.
I’ve been thrilled with the graphics work Alex did for my website. She was quick to understand exactly what I wanted to convey, and the logo and banner she created for me are exactly the image that I want to present to the world. Alex was sensitive to my feedback, willingly fine-tuning her design until it expressed my vision. She is both creative and professional, turning the work around in a very short period of time. I greatly appreciate the work she did for me, and would recommend her without reservation.
Working with Alex has been very beneficial to our company. She is professional, responsive, and very talented. She’s given us everything that we wanted and more. Our investors, customers, and associates have commented on the high quality of the visual identity she created for us. As a start-up company, we were lucky to work with someone who helped us convey our image so professionally. We have come back to Alex for additional projects, and plan to continue to do so in the future. We highly recommend her services.
Alex was a pleasure to work with in helping shape my company’s identity with a brilliant concept. She understood my business idea and was able to transform it into a perfect logo which can be used in multiple ways. Alex was extremely responsive to different ideas and was also very helpful with suggestions when I needed her design expertise. I would highly recommend her work!
I have worked with Alex to develop and produce the catchMe communication guidelines. Alex is a straightforward, direct graphic developer. She is a down-to-earth graphic talent which I recommend.
Alex has a fantastic eye and is very easy and professional to work with. We use many Asian based low cost providers to support the bulk of our work, however when it comes to design and artistic ability, I believe you get what you pay for and it shows for as long as you keep using the collateral/site produced. Given the excellent quality of her work and her responsiveness, Alex is still a huge relative bargain and much easier to communicate and work with than many providers. I would highly recommend Alex to any friend or business associate.
Alex designed our logo and did a fantastic job. She took the time to understand what we were selling and the image we were looking for. There was great communication throughout, Alex proposed some great variants and made very useful suggestions to help us decide on the final version. Overall we are very satisfied and would recommend Alex to anyone looking for a professionally designed logo.
In the shopping of my logo design, I decided to run an online contest and allowed anyone worldwide to submit an entry. Of all the 60-70 designers that participated in the contest, Alex was the person that most understood the look and feel I wanted in a logo. I could tell that she did her homework, researched my website, and really understood the audience that I was trying to reach. Furthermore, her design was nothing like the others. I checked out her portfolio and was impressed by the large array of original designs that she had already completed for companies of all shapes and sizes. Very impressive. I’d recommend Alex to anyone looking for a design. She’s very talented, responsive, and does a great job of trying to find out exactly what you want in your design!
Working with Alex on our recent Jo2Go Coffee project was a breath of fresh air! Her professionalism was much appreciated, and the quality of her work is truly exceptional – I’d definitely recommend her for your next design need.
