Photography and becoming a better designer



View all posts

Simon Alexander is a UX/UI designer for a Chicago-based agency by day. He picked up a camera only a few years ago, but his authentic, minimal, and modern photos are already turning heads.

“I love to look at pictures from a design perspective,” he told 500px. “I think this is a good way to learn something, improve skills and creativity, and find your own style.”

Great photos are well designed. Composition, color, tone, and layout all work together to tell a story, something Simon’s no doubt familiar achieving with his design work. Check out some of our favorite photos from Simon below.
