About me.

Hello 👋 I'm Alex Smee, a product designer and illustrator.


By day I work as an Experience Design Manager at Intuit, building QuickBooks Commerce, previously known as TradeGecko which I joined in 2014 as a seed-funded startup and helped build for six years until our acquisition by Intuit in 2020.


I have 15 years experience in digital and print design, primarily in the tech and music industries, for clients including Sony, Universal, Warner Music Group, Ace Records and EMI. Working on UI/UX design, advertising, websites, desktop and mobile apps, design research, packaging, books, publications, brand identity, copywriting, photography, animation and illustration.


Born in the UK, I have a degree in Graphic Design and Illustration from the London College of Communication, University of the Arts London. I now live in Singapore with my wife and two-year-old son 😀
