Nice to meet you.
My name is Alexander Walter. I design cool shitthings in sunny Los Angeles.
Most of my work is UI/UX stuff for the interwebs, but I have also designed a boatload of digital advertising, editorial visualizations as well as print material.
Take a look at some of my key projects below.
Founded in 1997 as the world's first online platform and community dedicated to architecture, Archinect ranks among the leading website in the field. The site comprises a variety of spezialized sections, including news & editorial, discussion forum, blog platform, job board, and online profiles for individuals, architecture firms, and universities.
My involvement: complete redesign and front-end development of the entire site, including UX/UI design for responsive article pages, payment forms, submission forms, comment sections, widgets, back-end control panel, all CMS pages, analytics dashboard with graphs.
Bustler.net is Archinect's sister site with a special focus on architecture and design competitions, events, and related news for an active, global audience.
My involvement: complete redesign and front-end development of the entire site, including UX/UI design for responsive article pages, payment forms, submission forms, comment sections, back-end control panel and all CMS pages.
The Architecture Salary Poll is a very popular Archinect microsite which (anonymously) surveys information about salary, location, educational background, overall job happiness, etc from architects worldwide. Users can compare that data, and various filters allow to generate easy-to-read list.
My involvement: complete design and front-end development of the entire site, including UX/UI design for responsive list pages, filter elements, and a submission form.
LA-based scuba diving store and eco-tourism operator Ocean Safari was in dire need of a complete web makeover. Besides the necessary store info, the new site emerged as an active hub for the Southern California scuba diving community with individual diver profiles, photo and video galleries, blogs, event calendars, and upcoming dive trip schedules.
My involvement: complete redesign and front-end development of the entire site, including UX/UI design for responsive pages across various categories, calendars, and interactive maps.
My personal side project, Tiny Modernism is a fun little apparel brand with architectural-themed designs screen-printed on toddler t-shirts and baby onesies. Totally niche for the tiny modernists out there.
My involvement: all screen-print designs, branding, logo, marketing material, social media creatives, and CSS customization of the Big Cartel web store site.
During my nearly 14 years as design and editorial production manager at Archinect, I created countless digital and print graphics for editorial and advertising campaigns, including cover pictures, infographics, illustrations, banner ads, social media graphics, micro sites, how-to guides, maps, posters, brochures, media kits, and, well, of course, business cards.
