Web Design & Development
I'm Alec, a Baltimore based designer with a knack for code and a passion for solving problems. With over 10 years of experience, I make interfaces, design interactions, and build digital products. I love working with inspiring people and companies on challenging projects.
At LaMotte, we build products and applications for professional water testing and analysis. I work in the Research and Development department, with a small team of 3 engineers. My role is to design and code the interfaces and user experiences for our various water testing applications.
Web Developer at ThreatQuotient. ThreatQuotient delivers an open and extensible threat intelligence platform (TIP) to provide defenders the context, customization and collaboration needed for increased security effectiveness and efficient threat operations and management.
Avesis provides vision, dental, and hearing health coverage to millions of Americans. My role at Avesis started as a web designer and junior programmer, tasked with supporting marketing's digital project initiatives. As my capabilities and working relationships with different teams grew stronger, I was soon the lead digital designer and front-end developer. Working closely between two departments, and with an extraordinary group of engineers, we were able to create meaningful, thought-driven experiences for a number of projects and products — both new and old. Notable works include the Avesis mobile app, various landing pages and emails, full site redesign, dashboards/product portals, intranets, and more.
My role at Benchworks started as a Graphic Design intern. Shortly after, as my skills developed, I was soon brought on board as the lead Web Designer/Developer. As digital projects started to flood in, we formed a new "digital" department. I got to work closely with a seasoned project manager and copywriter. Based on functional design principles, a collaborative mindset and passion for quality - together, we were able to meet every deadline, however unlikely it seemed. I had the privilege of working for some amazing big-name clients, like Coca-Cola, Shire, Noramco, Pfizer, and more. Example duties: email campaigns, static sites, Wordpress sites, site management, SEO, animated banner ads, functional specs, print and graphic designs (posters, banners, stationery, exhibition, product, so on).
A network of freelancers. We are a multidisciplinary design and programming practice building distinct and purposeful solutions across multiple channels. Based on functional design principles and a passion for technology, we build brands, bring ideas to life, and craft for the www, continuously iterating between concept and execution.
When I first started at LaMotte, my primary tasks involved adding a few new features and debugging the WaterLink Solutions web app. My next task is to start the development of the new design I've created.
I designed a simplified version of our WaterLink Solutions mobile app for "home" users. It is still currently in development but should be available to the market soon.
Redesign in progress. We aim to make the mobile experience consistent with our new web application look, which is also in the development stage.

Designed and developed a new look for the Avesis company website. Built with ASP.NET and C#, the goal was to completely revamp the old website from the ground up. The system required user login, secure dashboard and profile pages, static and dynamic content, and a provider search. I was able to integrate more modern technologies as well to helped improve ease of development and technological relevance. Built on bootstrap, we created a new typography system, layouts, and some new identity guidelines.
