About

Alexa Galea is a London based graphic designer creating work for film and television, museums, culture, installations and display.

Prior to studying Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins, Alexa studied Fine Art & History of Art at Goldsmiths College and worked in galleries and at the Victoria & Albert Museum.  This background of art and design history and research has proven indispensable when working on period film projects, and often provides a point of reference for design projects. Alexa continues to work on personal projects, enjoys hunting for nonpareil graphic ephemera, and is a member of Sonsoles screen-printing studio.
