Hi, I’m Alex and I graduated with a first-class degree in Illustration with Animation from Manchester Metropolitan University. Before starting at HealthCare21 as a junior designer, I worked as a freelance illustrator signed by The Artworks in London. I am excited to bring a different approach to the design work here at HealthCare21 and share my skills with the team. I have previously explored how illustrative cartoons can pair hand-in-hand with medical writing as an easier and more appealing form of communication as part of my dissertation, ‘The art of communication’. This dived into how illustration can approach difficult subjects with more sensitivity and is a more effective form of engagement than the use of photography and graphs, both of which are the ‘go-to’ in the medical industry. I am looking forward to using my existing experience to develop and promote the use of medical cartoons in the healthcare communications industry with HC21. In my spare time, I like to travel and learn about different cultures, as well as being a massive foodie!

 

Hello! I’m Gary and I’m a front-end developer. I’ve worked for a few creative agencies and completed some fantastic projects, such as a website for Virgin (Strive Challenge) and an art deco-style website for a restaurant in Manchester called Zaranda. I’ve been working as a web developer for over 8 years now, and I’m completely self-taught in most programming languages. I’m incredibly enthusiastic about user experience and user interface, which helps me to deliver projects that are easy on the eye and intuitive to use. It’s an exciting time to join HealthCare21 and I’m looking forward to changing the way in which we create front-end solutions for our clients to ensure that both usability and functionality are up to the high standard of work that the rest of the company provides. When I’m not building pixel-perfect solutions for our clients, I spend my time either gaming or playing football.

 


My name is Luisa, I graduated with a BA in Design and Communication in Rome back in 2009. Shortly after completing my degree, I moved to the UK and focused on the practice of graphic design. Before joining the team here at HealthCare21 as a designer, I worked for a variety of London-based design agencies and clients and, as a result, I gained a rich mix of experience in branding, literature, campaign development, and print and digital media. Whether it’s identity, print or digital, I strive to deliver design solutions to exact standards and timeframes, to captivate customers and build our brand. I am excited to contribute to the company’s development at such an exciting time for HC21. I believe that the knowledge we share as a team, combined with the collaborative and inspiring company culture, enables us to create the best possible work and to engage with our audiences in a fresh and effective way. In my spare time, I play guitar with two Manchester bands, I enjoy the challenge of learning music theory and I occasionally write music reviews.
