Hi, my name is Stan...
Graphic Design is something I grew up with. My father was a designer and photographer, and my mother was a computer programer, both of their work influenced me a lot and lead me to where I am now. Ever since I was a child, I always loved to draw and paint. Growing up and studying art all through my childhood, to high school and college, I always tried to take as many art courses as my school would allow. I always tried something new like ceramics, photography and electronics. In college, I found the benefit of knowing HTML and CSS, and quickly took web design courses.
Today I work for BrickHouse Security, an security company that is dedicated to solving business security needs through such products as GPS trackers and covert cameras used by law enforcement agencies and private companies and organizations, globally.
This site was created to showcase my work at BrickHouse Security and highlight my design style and personality. Feel free to look around and get to know my me and my work better. Enjoy.
Interests and Hobbies
These are some of my interests and hobbies. Part of what makes my designs unique, is my passion for many arts. I incorporate my all of these facets into my work, one way or another. While hiking and traveling helps me think better and focus as a creative, photography, illustration and coding helps me thrive creatively. Music energizes me and helps me be more productive and focus on what its that I'm doing at the time, it is also passion of mine as I love to play guitar and bass in the off-time.
I started drawing from an early age and have established a love for illustration, today it merges with my design through iconography, infographics and diagrams for products and services.
Since college, I've found that coding is a natural addition to design, what's more, is that it brings design to life. Allowing user functionality, one can bring a static design to a functioning experience.
Having grown up with a camera to my eye, it naturally transfers into my profession. I photograph products in a lifestyle/home scenario, talent posing with the product, as well as portraits of in-house staff. In my off-time I enjoy travel and street photography.
Music is something that motivates me and energizes me. It is something that helps me work and concentrate. I both love to listen to music and play my guitar and bass. Being an audiophile, I appreciate the technology behind the music and recording quality. As a musician, I crave to express myself in a different way than visually.
Travel, helps me learn more about culture and places I've never been to. It also inspires me creatively. Every time I travel, I always take some inspiration from the places I visit. I have integrated this love for travel with photography and coding and created (from scratch) my own travel photography site.
Active rest, exercise and hiking help me focus on live and goals. They also help me focus on my work and lead a healthier, more creative life. I always find some time during the day to either go for a walk or a hike on the weekend to re-energize and think about my design work form a different perspective.
Street and Travel Photography
While enjoying my time-off, I love to go for a walk with my camera. Often times I get to meet some interesting people and capture a portrait or two, or just document the city life. See my work on Instagram and follow my photography channel @Stan_Alexander. See my more of my work at my other site (which I've built from scratch) Stan Alexander Photo.
