Alexandre De Meyer Biography
Alexandre De Meyer was born in France (Voiron), where he grew up at his sister’s side. While growing up, Meyer was interested in graphic design. He had a creative streak and was willing to explore this side of his personality. Because of his love for digital art as a creative field, he attended college to study graphic design. Meyer met Danielle in 2011 when he designed a unique logo for Danielle’s boutique called “4 Miles 2 Memphis”. This business meeting should soon develop into something more.
The couple dated discreetly for several years before finally getting married on February 14, 2015. The wedding was accompanied by family and close friends. Although he came into the public eye through his relationship with his now ex-wife, he has since made a name for himself in the world of graphic design.
Alexandre De Meyer Career
After gaining several years of experience, Alexandre De Meyer decided to start his graphic design career full-time. He opened his print shop in Chicago and began creating artwork, postcards, stickers, posters, logos, merchandising designs, t-shirts and cover artwork. The uniqueness of his creative work made him popular. In addition, he started his career by opening a website created and designed under the name “Neuf Vies”, which further increased his popularity and business on the Internet.

Relationship With Ex-Wife Danielle Colby
The two met in 2011 when Alexandre De Meyer designed the logo for Danielle’s retro boutique. Danielle was then still with her former husband (Kevin Colby), with whom she had 2 children, just like then, but their relationship became strained because fame and popularity were hard to bear for her husband Kevin. After her divorce, she started dating Alexandre and then married him.
Their relationship and subsequent marriage, although short-lived, were in many ways a blessing for Meyer.
Although he was very talented, it was his relationship with Danielle that gave him the publicity he needed to make it in his career. Since Alexandre De Meyer was a French citizen, his marriage to Danielle also contributed to his obtaining American citizenship (Green Card). Danielle then enthusiastically shared a photo of herself with Meyer and thanked the U.S. Immigration Department for their support.
While their marriage lasted, they seem to have had a loving relationship, judging by the posts and pictures posted by Danielle on social media, since Alexandre is not present in social media. The reason for their separation is unknown, but Danielle has since moved on. She now lives in a live-in relationship with Jeremy Scheuch.

Alexandre De Meyer is a private person and as such he was accused of secrecy. This is evident from his non-existence in social media. He has an Instagram account where he makes his artwork available, but he is careful not to disclose any family or personal information on the account. During his marriage with Danielle, she shared pictures of them on her site and somehow kept the public “informed” about Alexandre’s life. This could be one of the reasons why not much has been heard of him since their separation. It is uncertain if he is currently with anyone.
His Love For Tattoos
Most of Alexandre De Meyer’s artworks and designs are inspired by tattoos. He has several tattoos on his whole body. This might have been one of the things that attracted him to his ex-wife (Danielle) since she is also a tattooed colleague who also has many tattoos all over her body.
