Meet Elizabeth Claire Alford

Today we’d like to introduce you to Elizabeth Claire Alford.

Hi Elizabeth, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I’m a 2021 graduate of Auburn University College of Architecture Design and Construction with a B.F.A. in Graphic Design.

I am an enthusiastic, creative person with solid problem-solving skills. I have a visual perception disorder (eye teaming problem) which led me, at an early age, to discover my natural talent and ability in design.

Through studying design, I also found that my physical weakness does not affect me, but is one of my greatest strengths. My passion and natural ability, as well as my determination and drive, have led to my success in Graphic Design.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Growing up, I have always loved art but didn’t think I could ever make it a career. In high school, I took graphic design just to get my computer class requirement.

After only one semester of taking the class, I got nominated for the governor’s honors program in Georgia as only a sophomore. This gave me the confidence that I could pursue this as a career.

And despite growing up with visual perception disorder. This showed me that that doesn’t hold me back but in fact, makes me a harder worker and pays more attention to detail.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
Yes, I am a Graphic Designer and love doing anything creative. I currently do freelance design work with one of the places I’ve done including Sweetland Amphitheatre in Lagrange Georgia.

But I also have started selling paintings and taking commissions for those. I also do photography I enjoy taking pictures of anything I can and also love shooting for other people as well.

What matters most to you? Why?
My friends and family. Without the constant support from the people around me, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

I have always had a lot of self-doubts and they have helped me to see that I deserve to be where I am and pursue my dreams. Not only have they always supported me as a designer and a person but also support all of my crazy ideas such as starting my own clothing line called soul rebel.

I haven’t announced that company yet but I’ve been working on it for the past few years and I am super proud of it and I’m hoping to launch it a pithing year.
