About

Self-portrait of Martin angled towards the right in a black and white striped shirt.

I'm a cross-discipline creative inspired by everything that combines function and form, and hold the strong view that everything can be improved with a design mindset.

Studying at Leeds Conservatoire in the north of England, I specialised in Music Production, receiving my Bachelor's degree whilst practicing artistic design in the city.

Deep in the London creative scene, I now use my 'full-stack' of creative business skills to work with music labels, publications, and artists of all kinds on a huge variety of projects. 

Clients

Immersed in the music scene, I was able to work with countless bands and artists to help craft the art and image for their music, soon leading meto work with independent brands to help form their identity.

This large volume of quality work led to projects with notable music industry clients such as Warner Music Group & ADA Music, Dork Magazine, among others.

Alex Tracey is an indie-pop/rock artist bending many aspects of guitar music with complex modern pop productions.

Work included song production, photography, artworking, video direction, and more.
