Hello, I'm David Rojo. A designer, illustrator and full-stack developer based in Austin, Texas.
Over the past 15 years I have worked in a large
roles. From print
production and publishing, to identity design / branding, web design and UI/UX
for digital products.
I believe good design requires an understanding not only of your target audience / end users, but also the requirements and goals of the business and stake holders. I approach projects empathetically, with curiousity, and with a healthy amount of enthusiastic skeptism. I believe design is collaborative and iterative, and while my goal is to solve communication and user experience problems, it is not best done alone. So I strive to also be a facilitator for everyone involved.
Currently I am working as a freelance Designer & Art Director with an emphasis in the craft beer industry. The grand majority of my projects are from repeat clients, some of which I have been working with for close to a decade. I also recently completed a full-stack web development bootcamp offered through UT Austin, and am looking to gain more experience in web development.
Outside of designing and coding, you can catch me creating music which is probably not fit for human consumption. In the pre-Covid19 world, you would also find me at local Heavy Metal shows, festivals and traveling as much as possible.
