Hello, my name is Alexis Cassar. I am a Concept Artist and Graphic Designer. I specialize in bringing content to life using a diverse yet refined set of skills. I cut my teeth as a production artist in the film and television industry and as a result I am accustomed to the time and sacrifices it takes to bring a large project together in a short amount of time.
My skill-set is purposely diverse. I learned early in my career that making myself capable of performing different roles within a team allowed me to better co-ordinate with other departments/team members as well as strengthen my overall capabilities as an artist. Having experience as a voice actor has also come in handy allowing me to provide both quality scratch audio tracks and professional dialogue at a moment's notice.
I approach all projects with an efficient focus on my responsibilities, gladly going the distance in crunch time situations. I listen to all changes and critiques with a productive attitude, always striving to better myself as an artist and team member.
I am long-time gamer with a unbound passion for story telling. Even the smallest details help to reinforce a design and can be used to flesh out more of a property's lore without having to pull back the entire curtain. A closet game designer, I have been hard at work developing my own table-top, tactical empire building game set in a age where space travel is common place. My passion for games is not a superficial thing, it is a lifestyle.
I will bring a hard won creative energy and fresh perspective to your production, reinforced with a friendly and collaborative work ethic. I look forward to being a dependable, resourceful and dedicated part of your team.
