Alexis Nera is a creative professional in advertising and graphic design. Her creative influence is a dovetail of the crazy colorful streets of Manila and the rich design and art scene of Washington D.C.’s Corcoran College of Art + Design. She believes that design is a powerful tool that improves the overall lifestyle of society. Her focus is on design with an advertising and strategic backbone.

With over four years in design and two years in advertising, Alexis worked independently as well as with a team to pitch and win new business handling above the line, below the line, digital, 360 campaigns, activations, and TV commercials. She has worked individually in growing beauty brands, building corporate identities, and other design responsibilities such as research,

strategy, packaging, web, mobile app, external and internal signage, wayfinding, and information design. When she is not preparing packaging plates or drafting vectors, she can be found biking, running, or in a café hacking away at a notebook cooking her next initiative.
