Reuben Jerome Dsilva

Nationality: Indian
Area of Expertise: UI, Typography, Graphic Design

Reuben is a graphic and interaction designer from Mumbai. After a couple of semesters in engineering, he switched paths to pursue graphic design at the National Institute of Design (NID), India where he graduated in 2014. What he finds fascinating about being a designer is the ability to switch from obsessing over a bezier curve to speculating about the future of transportation in the same working day. He would like to get better at forming connections between those two scales of thinking. He is also a big believer in the magic of inter-disciplinary collaboration and the fact that tools have the ability to shape how we think. After his graduation project with Codesign Brand Consultants in New Delhi, he worked with Los Angeles-based web consultancy, Anatta where he gained experience in user-interface and data-driven design. He is passionate about all things visual from typography, illustration and animation to street art. The experience at CIID has renewed his interest in technology and design thinking which he hopes to pursue in an inspiring team environment. Riding a bicycle, gardening, learning new guitar tabs and making a perfect cup of chai make him very happy.
