Coit Creative is an independent creative design studio based in Boulder, Colorado
Please contact Alexandra or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or inquiries about custom products and services. Coit Creative is open for collaborations, partnerships, and pop-up shop opportunities.
Coit Creative strives to use 100% recyclable materials. All product packing is composed of post-consumer products ranging from 30% post consumer waste envelopes, paper, 100% compostable plant based cello sleeves, soy-based inks, and recycled twine. Each business card is made out of recycled cotton t-shirts, giving a nice texture while also repurposing old materials (see link below to watch the process at Moo). When creating new products, extra time and attention is given to the layout of fabrication cuts, material use, and waste. In addition, the local print shop is one of the only sustainable printers in the region. They divert over 90% of their waste by either composting or recycling it and only use soy-based inks. Coit Creative is intentionally trying to limit the carbon footprint of this little studio and will continue searching for new products in keeping with its values.

Alexandra is the founder of Coit Creative, bringing her experience and minimal aesthetic as an architect into graphic design and illustration. Professionally, Alexandra spent several years working in architecture, through all phases of design and construction. Tangent to architecture, Alexandra developed her love for graphics while working for Adobe during graduate school. Since then, she has founded her own business creating a variety of products and services, applying the same conceptual design thinking to brand development, package design, illustrations, and print products.
Alexandra is also a full-time Instructor at the University of Colorado Department in Environmental Design, teaching the new generation of students how to think about design across many realms including, but not limited to, architecture and product design. She is developing a visual communication and technology curriculum to teach both hand and digital tools to Environmental Designers (architects, landscape architects, product designers, and urban planners). In the community, Alexandra serves as the Director for Design Education and Mentorship for the nationally recognized organization American Institute of Graphic Arts based in Denver, Colorado engaging with greater discussions about design and the future of education. Aside from designing, she is a professional certified guide through the American Mountain Guides Association and helps out with local chapters such as AAC, BCC, and the Access Fund to preserve public lands, climbing access, and conservation efforts. She donates time to create illustrations for the Boulder Climbers Community to help educate and promote these efforts. Many of Alexandra's designs come from trips outdoors climbing, hiking, and backcountry skiing.
