About, Contact Ali Gray
Hello! My name is Ali Gray, and I’m a designer currently residing in Portland, OR. I make things that not only look great, but solve problems, push creative boundaries and work in real world design.
In May 2012, I received a degree in Media Arts: Integrated Digital Media from the University of Montana in Missoula. While my degree focused mostly on motion design and animation, I also have 3 years of experience working as a web and graphic designer both at the university and professional levels. If you’d like to learn more, please download my résumé.
