North Branford native, graphic designer gives back to high school

Posted: Feb 22, 2024

When North Branford native Marc Daddio wasn’t playing high school sports, there’s a good chance he was drawing. Now as an adult, Daddio has made these two hobbies into a career.

Marc Daddio graduated from North Branford High School many years ago and now has his own graphic design business called Alpha Designz.

Daddio has over 400 clients, many of which are from the NFL. These include Dallas Cowboys star Ceedee Lamb and Cowboys tight end Luke Schoonmaker, who is a childhood friend from their time at Xavier High School.

The players use Alpha Designz for their social media and equipment. Daddio visited North Branford High School on Monday where he said his passion for art was born.

“Just seeing the name on the door, drawing was such an outlet for me growing up and she gave me that outlet and gave me the chance to express myself in the classroom,” Daddio said. “She knew I had really the talent. It meant everything Ms Maghini.”

Just as impressive as Daddio’s creativity and talent is his desire to give back.
