Hello, my name is Alec Tucker! In May 2020 I graduated from Wichita State University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Graphic Design with a minor in Marketing. I am currently a portrait photographer and I have been designing and taking photos since I was in high school. Through these past few years my skills have improved tremendously and I have found my own modern style. I have learned to take inspiration from everywhere I look with all the experience I have been able to gain in the worlds of design, social media, and marketing. What I enjoy most about the creative industry is the fact that it is always changing and full of new ideas. Whether it is rebranding, creating a campaign, or styling a photoshoot, I love the thought of my work being put out into the world. I hope you enjoy what I have accomplished thus far!
2015 – PRESENT
Photography has been a hobby of mine since high school and has since turned into a side business. I photograph families, seniors, personal commissions, and style photo shoots for myself and others. Photography is one of my favorite ways to express myself, and I enjoy the fact that I am able to put my own style into all of my photoshoots.
August 2016 – December 2016
I was the marketing intern for Goodwill Industries Corporate Office in Wichita. During my time working there I designed merchandise, managed social media accounts, helped design promotional materials, and organized fundraising events. I was also able to visit many of Goodwill’s facilities and learn about the programs and services they provide as a nonprofit.
Membership Marketing Chair
January 2017 – December 2017
Throughout my time in my sorority, Alpha Phi, I was able to gain real world experience by holding many different positions. Being the Target Membership Marketing chair, I was a part of the recruitment team and worked closely with them and the marketing team to create social media campaigns directed towards the type of members and audience we wanted in order to enhance our community.
Child Care Provider
August 2017-August 2018
I was a child care provider for a family with four children, I learned a lot about responsibility, time management, and the importance of keeping a lighthearted and open mind. I drove the children to and from school, practices, and different events. I was with them almost every day helping the family schedule their time and keep all aspects of their lives organized and manageable.
Social Media Management
January 2018 – May 2019
During this time in my sorority I was in charge of all forms of social media and oversaw the social media team. I created planned posts and the posting schedule. I also worked with the executive board to develop marketing strategies and campaigns to promote Alpha Phi events through social media and events around campus. In 2018 my sorority won the National Excellence in Social Media and Marketing award due to the changes and ideas I implemented while managing our accounts.
Graphic Design Assistant
July 2018 – July 2020
During the last two years of college I worked as the graphic design assistant for Shocker Printing Solutions at Wichita State University. My usual work day consisted of creating staff business cards and stationary, and designing event flyers, posters, and other commissioned work. During the summer of 2019 I was able to head the rebranding of our entire department including choosing a new name, logo, and brand for our print shop.
