My Bio
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 across deviantART.
