Hi, I'm Arthur.

Brazilian-American multidisciplinary visual designer. Scroll down to learn more about me. Or simply use the buttons to meet my work.

Arthur is a multidisciplinary visual artist & marketer with over ten 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 an Art Director at Pipitone Group.
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. From events to photojournalism, when I'm holding my camera I am fully immersed in art that helps me and other people express their views about life around the world. 
I'm also an immersive experience facilitator. Because of my previous work experience, I'm often facilitating service-learning experiences to college and international students, helping them navigate through sensitive topics such as race, climate change, global health, and others.  This work opportunity equipped me to also facilitate design and photography workshops. 
You can find my resume here.
Some companies I worked with:
Hyundai (local dealer), BMW (local dealer), Renault (local dealer), Peugeot (local dealer), Honda, (local dealer) Pizza Hut, Cia Athletica, Tramontina Brazil.
Some nonprofits/organizations I worked with:
Amizade, The Global Switchboard, PULSE Pittsburgh, Procopia, Squirrel Hill Health Center, Institute for International Education (IIE), The Fulbright Program, U.S. State Department

"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
"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, Executive Director of The Global Switchboard, USA
"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, Policy Coordinator for Mayor William Peduto at the City of Pittsburgh
