I’m Alicia Gearty—a Brooklyn-based designer and typography specialist with over 14 years of experience at some of the biggest brands in media. My undying obsession with puzzles and maps has influenced my approach to problem-solving through purposeful design. I’m a multi-passionate and nimble designer with a range of skills including branding, art direction, and event design to typesetting, web design, and hand lettering. I feel most at home working in partnership with copywriters, developers, and clients to bring creative concepts to life.
I’m really into patterns and geometry (the art kind, not the math kind). I draw inspiration from the Bauhaus and the Constructivism art movements. I could talk your ear off about typographic anatomy and hierarchy, but promise not to. My current favorite typeface is Acma by Pangram Pangram. I’m a stickler for pixel-perfect alignment, a sucker for a handwritten note, and usually have a cat by my side.
