Working hard to make life easier
The who and what is the elusive designer that is Alex S. Lakas
Just tryin' to make technology more delightful for everyone
Hola! I'm Alex (and no I dont really speak Spanish). Though, originally from Washington D.C., and living on the west coast for the last several years. From screen printing and lithography to Zippo
and Google, I've had the privilege of working on some super impactful projects with some seriously talented players over the years. I've led workshops and startups, and even workshops for startups. I've even spent time teaching for the AIGA. Today, I'm working with the Local Search team in Google's San Francisco location - improving various experiences from Navigational to Chains and Categorical Search.
When not coding or yelling at my computer screen, I do enjoy traveling, tons of coffee, looking for ways to expand my creative vocabulary, and cracking a joke or two. I'm always open to chatting, so don't hesitate to reach out. CV
and other resources available upon request.
