Hi, I'm Stanley Sy. I'm a graduate of the Art and Art History joint program at University of Toronto
and Sheridan College
. I work behind-the-scenes designing "stuff" for deviantART.
Most of it involves hand-coding XHTML & CSS for various layouts (such as new events, news or journal entries) around the site. I really enjoy solving usability issues and organizing information for clarity, so it's been a fun, on-going challenge.
I get to work with some pretty talented people such as pachunka
(who does most of the cool front-end stuff you see here), levinet
(who helps me out a lot), OliverJanoschek
(who does all those funky Fella images) and many more.
Previously, I designed deviantART's Minimal skin
. I also like to dabble in pixel art. You'll find a few of my little toolbar icons
