About Me


I am a graphic designer with over 50 years of experience and have been working with computers since the graphical user interface was invented.  My greatest strength is attention to detail, not only with regard to what my customer is asking me to do, but also what I believe he or she may need. I ask the right questions.

I have grown from humble beginnings, typesetting school newsletters on an IBM Selectric typewriter, when cut and paste meant an X-acto knife and rubber cement. My work now includes full corporate support (business cards, stationery, brochures, marketing materials, posters, banners, promotional items, and more). Until recently, I dealt primarily in print media, but I have expanded into video art, website development, and website maintenance.

At age 82, while maintaining my graphic design business, I have become an active blogger with a very good following. I stay active and fit by participating in exercise classes at the “Y” and by playing tennis (doubles, of course) several times a week.

As a graphic designer, I am widely known for my ability to repair, update, and modernize logos. Many of my customers have come to me with well-worn mechanical art, too abused to print and I have converted them to digital formats with great success.

I pay great attention to detail, not only in creating what my customers need, but also by attending to the production of the final product, which could be complex at times. I do my best to do it right!

Stanley Graphics is my company. My Website is stangraphics.com and my email is stan@stangraphics.com. My frequent postings may be seen on the Home Page of this blog.

I solve tough problems. Please tell me about yours.

Thank you,
Stan Berkson
