Hi! I'm Sayed Alamy

I’m a graphic designer and photographer, living in the magnificent, Pacific Northwest city of Seattle. I originated down South in Alabama where I grew up, studied design and started my career. Over the years I’ve worked as a graphic designer, production artist/assistant, webcast specialist, photographer, and videographer. I’ve had the opportunity to work on great projects for clients such as GeekGirlCon, Alabama Shakespeare Festival, Wizards of the Coast, Seattle International Film Festival, University of Puget Sound, Microsoft (via Ten Gun Design) and others. I love print design and photography! I’m interested in learning more about front end design, UI/UX so I can create more!
