Alex Budnitz

Principal, Creative Director

As Creative Director, Alex heads up a team of incredibly creative, hard-working designers, and maintains a full slate of client collaborations in his own right.

“I love making things. It’s fun doing design as a sole practitioner, but it’s often so much more challenging and rewarding to practice design in collaboration with smart, talented, opinionated people (and I’m talking both about our team here at Blackstone Square, and our clients around Boston and all over the world).”

  • When I’m not at Blackstone Square, you might find me

    Walking in the Arnold Arboretum with my family or treasure hunting at various thrift shops

  • Everyone in the office could tell you how much I love my

    Cameras / family / pantheon of odd nicknames and sounds

  • The last book I read was

    I’m Your Man; The Life of Leonard Cohen

  • My favorite view in the world is

    Oregon high desert


  • Walking with my son to find the giant machinery and trucks he loves

  • (Sometimes) resisting another book or camera purchase online

  • Taking part in our local Open Studios program with my photos

  • Enjoying a low-key date night with my wife at a local eatery
