Reuben Dsilva


My name is Reuben Jerome D’silva and I am a visual and interaction designer at the CIID.What I find 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. I think this is the hallmark of a good designer and I’d like to get better at forming connections between those two scales of thinking. I also believe firmly in the magic of inter-disciplinary collaboration and the fact that tools have the ability to shape how we think. After my graduation project with Codesign Brand Consultants, I worked with a Los Angeles-based web consultancy, Anatta where I gained experience in user-interface design, e-commerce systems, data-driven design and project management. I am passionate about all things visual from typography, illustration and animation to public art. The experience at CIID has renewed my interest in technology and design thinking which I hope to pursue with future work. I’m keen to work in a team with happy inspired people that values openness and exploration.My latest obsession is e-paper displays and Vulfpeck bass lines. I dream of one day having a screen print setup and maker lab of my own in a house (with a name).
