AW Design is a small but perfectly formed, dynamic creative-led design studio based near Cambridge.

I believe in high-quality, considered design that sets your organisation apart from the crowd and thats what I do; it’s a conceptual, artistic approach shaped into a strong set of design principles. 

Specialising in a research driven use of typography, brand identity, print and web design, social media imagery, digital marketing and videography - my skills lie in having over ten years graphic design experience in many different areas of industry. I focus on well-researched and developed concepts that best fits the individual needs of each brief.

AW Design is me, Alex, a creative ideas-led designer - and when the project requires I bring on-board talented freelance creatives and digital gurus. I offer an honest and heart-felt approach, a problem solving strategy and exceptional, creative work that does not cost the earth. So, if you want to get started on a fresh, innovative design to make your brand as amazing as it should be, get in touch.


I would love to hear from enthusiastic, creative people and am always keen to collaborate so get in touch: hello@alexwhiteleydesign.com


“Alex is a delight to work with, it’s straight forward communication. Alex works fast, makes sure that we're on the same page as ideas are developed and then delivers high quality work. I am a big fan of her work.”

Paul Bott, Chief Executive, SJOG

“I have worked with Alex on a few projects over the last year. I found that she took my often basic brief, and interpreted it very well, providing a few different approaches for a further conversation. She helped me to identify what I liked, and didn’t like, asking good questions to help me articulate this (something that can often be very difficult). Alex got the balance right for my corporate audiences, following their brand guidelines correctly, yet pushing the design in a new and interesting way.

For the actual artwork stage, Alex is very fast and produced a lot of output in a timely way. Her attention to detail was very high, which is a huge help on a very busy project. She also arranged for some last minute printing to be printed and delivered. Again, a huge help.”

I had the pleasure of working with Alex at AW Design on a project for the charity I work for, which was to produce a launch video for our popular Christmas campaign – Santa Stork. Alex 100% answered the brief, offering advice and alternative suggestions when necessary. We were very happy with the quality of the video, graphics and sound. The end result was more than we could have hoped for. The video was adapted so it could be published across all of our social media channels and has had the desired effect. All the work was produced remotely, and communication was always professional and thorough. I’d have no hesitation in recommending AW Design - they are a multi-talented, ‘one stop shop’ for all graphic design needs. Until next time…”
