Already a budding creative from the earliest days, Alex Cortes, started her career working as a graphic designer supporting nonprofits in Colorado and tackling all things branding from both a strategic and visual perspective. Now, as an Art Director for Mission Minded, she continues to couple her love of design and visual storytelling with her desire to help organizations communicate effectively and put their best foot forward. Alex also has an extensive background in fine arts and writing that she consistently draws upon to elevate her work.
Originally from San Diego, Alex traded the ocean for the mountains seven years ago and has fallen in love with the culture and community of Denver. Alex is an alumna of the University of Denver, where she graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Strategic Communications and Marketing.
When not creating and designing, Alex can usually be found with a book in her hand, any and all genres included. She also enjoys campfires, Denver’s 300 days of sunshine, horseback riding, and her sassy cat companion with a Disney namesake.
