Alex Emmerman

Art Director

Alex Emmerman is a talented creative artist with exceptional experience in design: websites, video production, user experience (UX), social media, and technology implementation. Alex holds a BFA in Visual Arts from UMBC and a Certificate in Technology in Arts Management from American University. As DSFederal’s Art Director, he oversees website design, branding, and 508 compliance, serving as the creative force behind all of DSFederal’s visual content—both online and print.
