Alistair McCready is a native New Zealander, currently residing in the United Kingdom. His work has been recognised through various awards and accolades, however, this is not something he generally leads with. Rather, his motivations stem from an ardent belief in the efforts of the working designer.

Starting his professional life as a printer, Alistair continued in this vocation while studying design at Auckland University of Technology. He has since moved into the field of graphic design, working across a range of outputs for various clients and organisations.

Alistair is both a founding member and current editor of Stemme; an annually published journal centred on design and collaboration.
