Amandine Alessandra is a graphic designer and a photographer based in London.
Since graduating with a Masters in Fine Arts & Aesthetics in Aix-en-Provence (France) and a Masters in Graphic Design from the London College of Communication (UK), she has developed her typographic practice both in a commercial context and as personal research.
She has worked on social-media based award winning campaigns for Havas Worldwide, developed large-scale typographic workshops for the Victoria & Albert Museum and various textile projects for DesignMarketo and Selfridges, created an organic typeface for ALSTOM and a performance-based campaign for the WWF in Germany to help raise awareness about Earth Hour.
A co-founder of Tower Block Books Ltd, a London-based independent publishing company, Amandine is the co-author of 2 children’s books. She is also a contributor to publications by Steven Heller, Gestalten, Rotovision, Mark Batty, Laurence King, as well as Slanted and Wired magazines.
Amandine also works as a freelance photographer, collaborating with art directors, architects, interior and product designers. Her photographic work has been published by the likes of Domus, the New York Times, Wallpaper* magazine, Elle Decor Italia and Vogue Brasil.
She has worked as a lecturer at the Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts of Beirut, Lebanon, at the Universities of Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, and taught both on the BA and MA courses at the London College of Communication. She is currently having a great time teaching at Ravensbourne University when she is not developing playful and slightly absurd typographic workshops.
