I have been working as a Visual Communications Designer and Illustrator for more than 20 years for numerous corporate customers in the advertising, marketing, finance, museum, IT and broadcasting industries. Please view my areas of expertise, as well as my art, illustration and animation websites.


Since November 2000 I have hired Alex Tavshunsky regularly on a contract basis. On every occasion he has delivered the graphic design tasks with the highest level of professionalism. His drawing/illustration skills are outstanding and his great knowledge of graphics software enables him to translate that to any digital format. We have a wide range of projects from print to web and multimedia and Alex is comfortable working with all of them. Alex is pleasant to deal with and approaches every project with enthusiasm whether it is tedious or challenging – he would be a valuable asset to any company requiring these skills.
Alex has been working for Mystus Exhibits for several years and in several capacities. His assignments have included graphic design, illustration, graphic production, technical drawings and 3D computer rendering. He has produced work for both printed graphics and computer based multimedia exhibits. His work has been exemplary in all areas. He is fast and efficient and a pleasure to work with. Without hesitation I can recommend him for any graphics, illustration or imaging assignment.
Alex's work as an illustrator and designer is exceptional. Having worked with Alex on several projects and promotional initiatives (at Mystus Interactus) I found that his talents as an artist are equaled by his professionalism and excellence as a team player. From what I've seen, Alex produces quality work on time and on budget.
Alex is a top notch illustrator who delivers high quality work, on time and on budget. He is a gem and a pleasure to work with.
Thanks for doing a great job on such short notice with such a large amount of work. We will definitely work with you again. You will be our “go to” designer.
Thank-you for a great piece of work. It was a delight working with you. And the end product is exceptional. We will definitely work with you again.
Hi Alex, Excellent work – and thanks for turning it around so quickly.
This is perfect Alex. You've done a killer job on two very different styles.
