Overview

Hey! I’m Alice, a New Zealand-born, Berlin-based designer. I co-founded indie publishing collective GLORIA Books through which we produce art and photography books and I also have a firm foot in children’s publishing which I adore for the bright colours and imaginative expression.

My portfolio samples display both short and long term projects, with a variety of budgets and I’m open to discussing your vision so we can produce something we’re both proud of! Let’s get started.
