Bio

I'm a creative weirdo. I like to design. I like to write. I like to perform. I like film. I like music. I like concepts. I'm a multi-disciplined artist with keen interests in design, narrative, film, performance art, and conceptual art. I specialise in concepts and tone of voice. I've had short stories, poetry, short films, and performance art pieces published and produced in recent years. I like to have fun and meet people (cliché, but true). I'm a very curious person and I love learning new things. I also love philosophy and psychology, aside from art and design, and I'm trying to learn more about these areas to inform my artistic practice. I'm from Melbourne, but I'm moving to London in June. I'm a dual citizen with Australian and Italian passports. I love to travel. I travelled alone through parts of Europe as a 20-year-old and learnt a lot about my interpersonal skills and the amazing people and rich cultures was inspiring. I majored in Creative Writing and Performance Art and minored in film, music, and conceptual art during my Bachelor of Arts degree. I completed my subsequent Creative Arts Honours Thesis exploring authenticity and empathy in fiction with First Class Honours. I studied Graphic Design, UI, and UX at Shillington College to further enhance my skillset and concept development. Prior to my studies I worked casually for 2 years at a financial brokerage firm in which I learnt how to deal with clients daily and learn vital time management skills. I love football. I support Juventus dearly. I'm definitely a human person. I'm not a spider.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

You should pick me becuase

I'm an open-minded, curious, and easy to get along with individual. I love people who are passionate about something they love. I love to learn, and I love to travel.My strongest asset is my adaptability. I'm always receptive to ways in which I could improve a design or a concept, but that doesn't mean I won't defend work when necessary. I always aim to provide an alternate perspective from the norm and to be open to diverse ideas; aiming to mould good concepts into better ones.My university course and my Shillington degree has prepared me to work collaboratively, independently, and thoroughly.I love writing copy and coming up with brand concepts or brand narratives; I'm obsessed with stories.I try to tackle everything I do with an emphasis on empathy and research.From inception to production, a concept is grown through hard work and play, curiosity and grit. I know I can provide a determined attitude to sustain a 6-month internship with a positive mindset and bright outlook. Hopefully I can contribute to these studios in turn, as I attempt my sponge impersonation to soak up as much information as I can.And I love the smell of lavender.Thanks for reading and thank you for your consideration :)Sincerely yours,Alexander Nuccio.

Why are you interested in this opportunity?

What are you looking to gain from an opportunity like this?

After completing WGI I would hope to have bolstered my skillset to continue exploring further opportunities in design and hopefully, get a junior role at an amazing studio with amazing people who inspire, and I enjoy seeing every single day. Working at a company that I can continue to develop personally and artistically and continue to create work I'm passionate about. My ultimate goal is to be a well-respected designer and artist who continues to work with people who share common values; driven by happiness.

What would be your goals after completing this engagement?

4. How did you hear about wgi?

Share an example of a time you were most motivated and a time you were most demotivated.

My most motivated was during my time at Shillington earlier this year. It's a three-month course 8am-5pm every day. I didn't miss a day during the course because I loved the work, I loved learning, I loved the teachers, and I loved the students I worked alongside. I worked hard throughout the weeks because of them. When our final project was to produce a portfolio with 6 works to be completed in 13 days and the days got longer and longer, I worked harder and harder because it was a pleasure doing something you love, alongside people you love. My most demotivated was during my final year at high school. I had glandular fever and consequently developed chronic fatigue and depression. I barely went to class because I was so tired and sick. I wasn't myself at all. The only thing I was able to do to get better was rest. I was the type of person who would go home and do my homework straight away, so this was hard for me to take. Consequently, I had to repeat my final year because the teachers knew I deserved better for my final mark. I didn't agree and I definitely didn't want to be held back a year without my friends. I was at my lowest point; a point that I didn't think I would ever reach because of my happy-go-lucky personality. I finished my final year, but only just. I'm glad I did because I wouldn't be the person I am today without persevering through that experience and learning a lot about myself along the way.

In your opinion, what creates a great culture at a company?

The people. Open-minded, kind-souled humans who want to collaborate and thrive together through their work. People who love to learn from anyone and anything. People who love receiving feedback and love giving feedback. People who have strong opinions but aren't afraid to change and adapt when circumstances change. People who love learning and evolving. People who love to work, but also love to play. People who are serious, but not boring. Beers can help too.

What brands and companies do you admire and why?

Muji. I think they've got a pretty cool philosophy and simplicity about their branding (logo-free). They seem genuine and open. Studio Ghibli seems like an awesome place and consistently deliver amazing products (films) and I admire Miyazaki and the late Takahata. They deal in imaginations and continue to inspire current and future generations. Dejour Jeans. It's a local business in Melbourne that only sells jeans. The guy who runs it is awesome. You pick the pants you want; they measure you up and tailor the jeans accordingly; they're amazing quality, and cheap. As long as you're being open, honest, and authentic as a brand and a company and your product is solid then your marketing and branding should easily transmit your values. They should always go hand in hand; your branding should reflect you as company and your product. Too often however, the branding overpromises and the product underdelivers. Constantly trying to better your product is always better than constantly trying to trick your consumer into buying a bad product. I think the three brands above are good examples of this desire for improvement.

What do you do to stay sharp and improve your craft?

Completing the Shillington course is a good example of me challenging myself and striving to learn something new and improve my craft. I was craving a new challenge and a new perspective following a year working for myself after finishing my previous degrees and I feel like the design course definitely helped me focus my creativity, harness my creative work ethic, and improve my concept development. I was previously doing/attempting conceptual designs for myself on Word! (I got to know Word well; too well.) Constantly think. Constantly question. Constantly remain curious. Constantly challenge yourself. Creativity comes from everywhere else but within you. Experiencing the outside world will inspire new imaginations. Try everything. If you hate it then you've learnt something new. You learn little from success, and you learn nothing from standing still. Your mistakes and failures are moments you learn the most.

What’s your favorite quote?

"Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better." Samuel Beckett.
