Alex Mejias graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2005 with a major in Graphic and Interactive Design. In the early days of his career, he pursued web design and development for marketing websites and landing pages. After working in the NYC Advertising industry for four years, Alex began to pursue a pure hybrid role of designer and developer.
In 2008 Lazers Interactive was founded. Lazers was a one-stop-shop vendor for ad agencies such as Crispen Poter Bogusky, BBH, BBDO, etc. The shop provided design and development services for Realtor.com, Bank of New York, TouchTunes Interactive, and TAG Heuer. Client services included design, development, 3d modeling and animation, motion graphics, and rich web application development.
In January of 2019, Alex moved to take on the role of Head of Experience Development for HPE's Chief Design Office. In this new people leader role, Alex built a high performing team of twenty UI/UX designers and developers responsible for crafting exceptional user experiences. During this stage in his career, Alex focused on growing his team member's careers and skillsets through measured achievement tracking and continuous, direct feedback.
December of 2020, Alex joined Amazon Ads as a Senior Design Technologist creating immersive digital experiences for brands such as Pepsi, L'Oreal, Proctor & Gamble, Apple, Nintendo, and Calvin Klein. At Amazon, Alex manages a small team of Design Technologists, enables pre-sales activities by building functional prototypes, provides technical leadership to the global Amazon Ads organization, and creates polished production grade executions displayed through Amazon.com and Fire TV. In just one year, Alex was able to proactively innovate Amazon Ads' developer toolset by creating a reusable component library to accelerate landing page building and delivered Amazon Ads' first augmented reality advertising experience. Today, Alex continues to expand the hybrid nature of his work by incorporating people leadership skills into his existing design and development acumen.
