Alicia Stenger—designer, artist and educator

Name: Alicia Stenger

Profession: Designer, artist and educator

Alicia Stenger's work plays with light, projections, sound, video, and print mediums. We asked Alicia to share the tricks and tools that make up her daily design toolkit...

Notebook:

I like a notebook with blank pages for sure!

Colour:

Alicia Stenger's current favourite colour palette.

Era:

Late Modern and Swiss design are two favourites of mine.

Designer on speed dial:

While designers are wonderful, I find a lot of inspiration from artists. So I’m going to say, Henri Matisse.

Fonts:

"firm favourite" written in futura.

Futura.

"a distant love" written in bodoni.

Bodoni.

Never again:

Yikes, I have never used a font I’ve become allergic to!

Organisational method:

I use a combination of physical post-it notes and digital tools—Notion for personal use, Asana at my 9-5. But I also often find myself just flowing with what feels natural on the day.

Trusted advisor:

My creative friends!
