I'm Rodrigo Tello, a digital and analog designer, illustrator, artist, musician, developer, architect, occasional writer and maker.
I'm a designer at Hopscotch, a visual programming language for kids to explore the powerful ideas of computing. In the past, I've worked as a (failed) startup founder, back-end (Ruby on Rails, Git/GitHub, Heroku, SublimeText, Linux terminal) and front-end (HTML/CSS) developer on my own startups and client projects.
I use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, Sketch, Framer, architectural softwares like Autocad, Revit, and Sketchup as design tools. I’m also good at drawing and illustrating, both analog and digital. I'm not an animator, but I'm good at making GIFs. I also create and manipulate sounds with Logic Pro X, Sony Acid Pro, Sony Soundforge, iMaschine and multiple analog and digital instruments.
I believe design is a discipline to shape the tools that shape our world.
I (still) believe in the Internet.
I believe in humanity & art.
