Design x Technology

I currently work at Automattic as a designer on the marketing team. My responsibilities span creative and brand for mainly WordPress.com and Automattic's various product offerings. 

Before Automattic, I was currently a Creative Director at RED Interactive Agency based in Santa Monica, CA. With more than 15 years of design experience in advertising, I've had the honor of leading numerous digital advertising campaigns for ESPN, Nickelodeon, Nike, AMC, Budweiser, and more.

I am passionate in connecting the dots between design and technology.

I love design, technology, sports, food and coffee. I believe design can change the world. Every little bit of innovative problem solving counts, whether it's big or small. From improving the workflow of our creative team, to refining the rounded corner in a button, I believe in constant iterative improvements. Design is never finished.

Please drop me a note to chat anytime! Thank you for dropping by. 

Best,
Ballio
