Alex Ostroy

Award winning, hands-on creative who is comfortable wearing many hats. With over 15 years of experience and a proven record of creative problem solving, vision, management coupled with a strong entrepreneurial spirit. A passion for creating sharp, professional, and unique designs and messages that immediately attract attention and drive responses. Skilled developing high-impact marketing materials, brand identities, digital and print designs. Track record of meeting the most demanding deadlines, communicating effectively with cross-functional teams, and leading by example. 
The computer has allowed designers to blur the traditional boundaries between photography, illustration and graphic design. I like no longer being bound by those labels, and my work usually starts with an idea, before I figure out the right mix of tools to bring the design to life. Frequently I like to explore new possibilities in the lines between generally the accepted categories; be it art and design or photography and illustration.
I am a lifelong cyclist and I have founded a successful regional cycling site: NYvelocity.com, that is over 12 years old. I also operate a cycling sportswear company that has designed clothing for over fifty teams and events, combing my two obsessions: PoseurSport.com.
