Alex Center

Founder of CENTER

Prior to launching his own studio in 2018, he spent a decade working for The Coca-Cola Company, where, as Design Director, he led the vision for the beverage brands vitaminwater, POWERADE, and smartwater.

Over his career, Alex has helped build several billion-dollar brands, designed packaging that has been in the hands of millions and given keynote talks all around the world. Today, at his Brooklyn-based, award-winning branding company CENTER, he and the team are building the next generation of icon brands partnering with companies like United Sodas of America, HEYWEAR, Apple, Good Light, New Balance, SIMULATE and Liquid Death. Alex is also a mentor at the SVA Masters in Branding program and cohost of the wildly popular podcast, Front & Center. In his shrinking personal time, he enjoys rooting for New York teams that wear blue and orange and spending time with his wife Jacquelyn De Jesu and their zero kids and zero pets.
