My name is Austin Alcala and I'm a designer from the Bay Area. Although I studied industrial design in college, graphic design stole my heart and has been loyal ever since. From streetwear and screenprinting to Tweet campaigns and site launches, I intend to keep growing in any and every avenue of design.

you can make some dope stuff…but what separates you vs this other wizard?
With experience in both agency and in-house settings, I bring best practices when it comes to processes, efficiency, and communication between partners and brands. Not only can I collaborate with others to ideate impactful innovations, but you’ll also find me in the trenches adjusting key frames in after effects and auto layout in figma. My technical, creative, and collaborative skills elevate teams across the board.
Whether you're a big name or
a small fish, I'm here to help connect you with your audience through visual storytelling and a memorable identity.
Visual design, UX, UI, presentations, storyboards, style guides, product design, social ads, and more! Design leadership roles such as art direction, Figma training, AE training, and client onboarding are right up my sleeve.
I'm always making moves. UI product demos, storyboards, 2D animated illustrations, and animated ads are some of my favorite projects to work on.
From simple icons to complex posters, nothing is out of reach. Album art, hero site graphics, illustration brand styles, and social posts is the tip of the iceberg. Contact me to collab!
