Artist, Photographer, Creative Director, Perfectionist. Those are just a few of the words used to describe Photonics’ president and founder, Alan Brown. A graduate of Syracuse University with a BS degree in Communications, majoring in Advertising Photography and minoring in Art History, Alan has amassed more than three decades of experience with all facets of visual media. Alan started PhotoDesign, an advertising photography studio in 1981. He then started Photonics, a graphic design and web/mobile app development firm in 1989 (in its 29th year) and also for six years was a partner in a socially responsible eco-friendly women’s apparel company, Tulong LLC . Spare time, when it exists, allows Alan to explore his love of photography and illustration and his disdain for being a purist.
