About Alex Szabo-Haslam

Alex was was born in Sheffield in 1982. Shortly after buying a guitar, he discovered Aphex Twin and his plucking days were over. Years later Alex co-promoted the now legendary club night Headcharge, before becoming events manager for Sulphate.

Alex's works outside of commercial graphic design explore data visualisation, obsessive detail and cartography — often coming to fruition on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. He's taught media at Sheffield Springs Academy, lectured graphic design and journalism at The Sheffield College, and guest lectured at Sheffield Hallam University. He's never owned a cat and doesn't like Coldplay.
