Hello, my name is Rodrigo

I am a passionate designer and thinker about how design can help people’s experience in the use of technology.

About me

I have been working towards understanding how people think, act and use, whether online or offline, on a daily basis, and at all times, solutions that make their lives easier. How should smartphones, computers, the Internet and other technological devices facilitate, complete and complement our activities? I have an educational background in advertising and social communication, but I’m also looking to move forward in areas that complement design at all its levels. companies.
Also I have a Youtube Channel called Design Team, to teach and coach designers to improve knowledge and teamwork.
