Hi! I'm Arthur. 👋🏻

Brazilian-American multidisciplinary Art Director and UX Designer currently living in Pittsburgh, PA. Scroll down to learn more about me and my work.

Arthur is a multidisciplinary visual designer with 15+ years of experience.
Hello, I'm Arthur “Daniel” Alexander, a dual Brazilian/American citizen born and raised in a small city called Santarem, in the middle of the Amazon rainforest. I'm married and the father of two beautiful children.
After receiving my BA in Social Communication in 2006, I launched a career in advertising in Brazil, where I advanced from art director to creative director in Brazilian ad agencies. Fast-forward, after many work hours and tons of projects, I set up shop in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, and at the moment, I work as Pipitone's Art Director.
As a side job, I'm a photographer/videographer. My career in advertising combined with storytelling skills and photography classes allowed me to gain a unique view of this field. See my photography work here.
When I'm not working, I'm traveling with my family, learning to skateboard and playing Ukulele.

"Many times clients don't know what they want until they see it; Arthur has the remarkable professional ability to receive vague and complicated feedback, decipher it, and present you with exactly what you didn't know you wanted."
Alaa Mohammed, Senior Civic Innovation Specialist for Mayor Ed Gainey at the City of Pittsburgh
"I’ve had the immense pleasure of working with Daniel (Arthur) over the course of five years in scenes ranging from organizational fundraisers to experiential art events. Across professional and personal contexts, he’s a quintessential collaborator, bringing his unique brand of patient thoughtfulness and attentive listening. Strong interpersonal skills are the foundation of his creative profession, and the product is simply fabulous. He’s an artist. And he’s a total joy."
Nathan Darity, Former Executive Director of The Global Switchboard, USA
"Arthur has helped me throughout the years not only with his photographies, portraits, and design but especially with the sensibility behind his eyes, which brought new perspectives to me and my art, allowing me to look at myself as an artist in different ways I simply couldn't before."
André Coruja, Singer and songwriter, Brazil
