Various Companies and Corporations

1969 – 2010 (41 years)Baltimore, Maryland Area and Elsewhere

Born in Baltimore, Maryland, and living most his life there, Frank Stapleton is happily married with two beautiful daughters, Leah and Alisa. An ongoing interest of his is the shape of things and their functionality. His background as a "Human Factors" engineer for over 25 years is responsible for his concept-driven approach to his inventions and art work. He feels that in good design, especially logo design, nothing should be arbitrary. Every element has a purpose or it shouldn’t be there.

Frank has designed logos for large corporations and small businesses, once ran a business called Mock-ups For Industry where he built prototypes for large corporations, entrepreneurs and inventors.

He is also an expert on panel design and layout. He was responsible for the layout of all front panels and equipment for a large corporation located in Maryland where he worked for over 23 years.

Frank has written an e-book/course on inventing called "How To Make Millions With Your New Idea." It shows exactly how he goes about developing a new idea from start to finish.

Right out of high school Frank worked as an architectural draftsman for a precast concrete company located in Baltimore, Maryland. From there he went to work for a large electronics company as an electrical/mechanical draftsman.

Frank worked his way up to an industrial design position where he built mock-ups to address human factor issues and eventually became responsible for the layout of equipment/panels based on military specifications (Mil-spec 1472) for the U.S. Military.

He soon enough gained a professional engineering status through an engineering review board, and received the title of Engineering Designer!
