My name is Aris Acoba
I've been a product, and web designer for a combination of 9 years.I am currently working at GitHub as a product designer, helping build the tools for people who like building software.
Early in my career, I started as a software engineer developing financial systems. On the side, I did designs, and developments on various landing pages, and CMS sites. Some of my work exposed me to learn new languages and frameworks such as Ruby on Rails, Elixir, and ReactJS. I see this as my advantage in designing feasible solutions and communicating ideas to engineers. I have since focused on design. I have held positions in various industries such as banking, advertising, and startups.
Here are some of the companies and brands I have worked with: Lonely Planet, Simmons & Simmons, OP Games, Toyota Philippines, Mashup Garage, Eastwest Banking Corporation, PAREF Southridge School, IdeasXMachina, and Lorenzana Food Corp.

I take doing other things aside from my day-to-day a big part of my creative process. I’ve learned to accept that burnout can happen no matter what is your level of experience, and diversifying what you’re working on can help in keeping work fatigue at bay.
Here are some samples from my experiments, random ideas, and trying out different things for self-education, and sometimes for fun.
Despite focusing on design, I enjoy playing CSS and making things that I randomly think (e.g. Aeropress from checkbox). I achieve a different level of satisfaction whenever I get to develop the designs I made; some of the shots here are even written without an initial design. I hope you get delighted as much I enjoyed making these.
