I'm Rodrigo Tello. I'm a digital and analog designer, illustrator, artist, musician, developer, architect, occasional writer and maker.

I'm a designer at Hopscotch, where we make visual programming languages for kids to explore the powerful ideas of computing. In the past, I've worked as a (failed) startup founder, back-end (Ruby on RailsGit/GitHub, Heroku, SublimeText, Linux terminal) and front-end (HTML/CSS) developer, and my own startups and client projects.

I use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, Sketch, architectural softwares like Autocad, Revit, and Sketchup. And for the record, I’m also very good at drawing and illustrating, both analog and digital. I'm not an animator, but I'm really good at making GIFs. I also know how to manipulate sounds using Sony Acid Pro and Sony Soundforge.

I organize teams, make products and hack processes.

I believe design is a tool to shape our tools. With tools, we shape our world.

I believe technology is a canvas for human growth.






I live in NYC.

I was born in Cd. Victoria, Tamaulipas, Mexico, on October 23, 1987.

I barely sleep.
