Stack bond is the most contemporary brick pattern as it's the pattern that treats the brick more as a screen than as a wall. In this pattern, vertical and horizontal joints are aligned. Doing so creates a pattern that, while visually lighter than the traditional running bond, is quite a bit weaker.

More info about brick laying styles. 1/3 Running Bond / Stretcher raking bond has the vertical joint set away from the middle of the bricks above and below. A header bond has the same overall pattern as a running bond but using the brick header (short side) in lieu of brick stretcher (long side) as the exposed surface.
