About

My name is Alexander Dahshleiger. I am a passionate visual designer who loves typography, shapes and instantly questions the relation between objects. Throughout my career I play different roles performing as information architect, brand or experience designer. Recently, working with hi-tech startups my role includes also product specification and management. And yet projects are different my mission remains to create elegant and easy to use interfaces.
