Alex Townsend
Design Director

profile-2019

Leading the design on innovative product experiences and services that delight millions of consumers around the world.

New Zealand based Far North Studio showcases a sample of my work for global clients inlcuding DAZN, Sony PlayStation, Microsoft, Uniqlo + many more. Fortunate to work across many industries at the intersection of brand and digital innovation.

Previous to this I have worked for over a decade in London, leading teams in the digital space focusing on Art Direction 
and User Experience applied to various platforms and devices.

I have a keen interest in the future of technology and design, music, pop culture, the metaverse and immersive virtual worlds.

Connecting and working globally has helped me approach design work with empathy and a forward thinking design ethic.
