whom I've crossed
paths on past
Hi, I’m Alex!
I live and work (and play)
in Vancouver, Canada. Currently in
the Advertising Industry, I specialize in graphic
design, interface design, web development, and
user experience. Having spent 5+ years in an agency
environment, I have been part of many big
projects and team dynamics.
Right now, I work on contract basis.
In my spare time, you can find me chasing
around balls on a tennis court or hitting them
away on the golf course. Thanks for visiting
and I hope to be working
with you soon!
Chipping pieces away as
opposed to adding more is
quite a passion within a
passion for me.
Behind all the aesthetics,
the user experience is a
major force and it's at the
forefront of (almost)
every decision made.
Effective visual elements keep the modern user stimulated and allow me to be super creative in
Taking into consideration future applications of my work, I go the extra
mile upfront to save
I've been told I'm over meticulous sometimes and it's not worth the effort.
I say they're wrong!
If you're looking to traditional
advertising or looking to get started with a new company or product, I can help you establish that unique look to make your brand stand out.
Wondering if it's time to give your business an online presence? Or looking to redesign an outdated site? Well, you're in luck. I do that.
Alex is a superstar! I’ve said this to him 6 years ago and I continue to vehemently stand by my word. I have had the privilege of being his instructor for several courses during my tenure at Capilano University. From day one, he set himself apart from all the other students based on his maturity, leadership abilities, willingness to help others, attention to details and eagerness to learn and excel in whatever the task at hand — no matter how minute.
After graduation, he remained true to his personae and work ethic. He continued to build upon his skills and talent, but at an unbelievably accelerated pace. As a result, I can say — without any hesitation — that the quality of his work is on par with some of the top interactive designers in the country. But more importantly, his level of professionalism, integrity, and pride is what sets him apart and above the rest. I look forward to the day when I see his name recognized around the world as a leader in this industry. That way I can proudly say, “I knew him when he first started”, and be the first to buy stocks in his company!

We began working with Alex with less than two months to the planned relaunch of our brand. We were looking for someone to deliver a functional site that could creatively reflect our services and experiences with style. With a limited budget and aggressive timeline Alex delivered designs ahead of schedule and with great thought and understanding of our end goal. He is a true web partner in every sense of the word.

I hired Alex Rakic to design and build a brand new website for The River Club. Alex captured all the elements I required. The website is smartly design, comprehensively informational and captures the feel and community spirit of The River Club. Alex is a detail-focused, accommodating individual that is extremely knowledgeable in his craft and wonderful to work with.
Since the website launch, I have hired Alex to design a company business card for a new venture. Needless to say, I was impressed yet again by his creative abilities, professional nature and commitment to my satisfaction. If you’re looking for a skillfully intuitive designer and programmer that will ensure your needs are met, talk to Alex.

I was feeling the need for an overhaul of the brand identity and direction of my photography business, so I knew I needed to contact Alex immediately. He had previously designed a simple yet effective WordPress site and logo for me and I knew that I could trust him to provide again. This time around I was looking for something fresh, modern, simple, and clean that would showcase my photographs, and Alex delivered! He was able to create a logo and website that really resonated with my style.
I highly recommend Alex. He is the right choice if you are looking for a professional designer who is very efficient, mindful of a tight budget, and can deliver a finished product in a timely manner.

It is a great pleasure to work with Alex. His ability to do graphic design work combined with html coding is much appreciated. He is very professional and has no problem starting from scratch on a design when my vision goes in a different direction from his. Alex has never missed a promised completion time/date and has rescued me more than once when urgent changes were required at the last minute.

I have worked with Alex Rakic for several great years while I was the Studio Director for Cowie and Fox and continue to work with him as a contractor at my new company Noel Fox Inc. Alex is very organized and builds great web sites, he is also easy to work with and completes his projects on time and on budget.
Having spent considerable time with Alex both at work and on the tennis court, where he continually kicks my butt, I can confidently say that he is a fun and likeable person who knows how to balance work and play just right. Alex is a great guy and I highly recommend him for all of your web building needs.
