Alicia Gearty is a Brooklyn-based designer and typography specialist with over 14 years of experience at some of the biggest brands in media. Influenced by her undying obsession with puzzles and maps, she’s always looking for ways to solve problems with purposeful design. Multi-passionate and nimble, Alicia’s skills range from branding, art direction, and event design to typesetting, web design, and hand lettering. She feels most at home working in partnership with copywriters, developers, and clients to bring creative concepts to life.
Alicia loves patterns and geometry (not the math) and is influenced by the Bauhaus and the Constructivism art movement. She could talk your ear off about typographic anatomy and hierarchy, but promises not to. In case you’re wondering, her current favorite typeface is Acma by Pangram Pangram. She feels strongly about pixel-perfect alignment, is a sucker for a handwritten note, and usually has a cat by her side.
