Esther Rizo & Rodolfo Acosta
Esther Rizo is a digital designer with a background in art, documentary and visual design. Since she moved to Berlin in 2011 she has been working for innovative projects, creating interfaces and user journeys to improve the usability of digital and analogue products. Her recent focus has been design thinking and user-centered practices. Esther’s design is devoted to the world and responsible for the way we influence our surroundings: “The future demands the creative capacities and technical abilities of designers, scientist and artists to become more democratic, sane and intelligent.“
Rodolfo Acosta was born in Mexico and moved to Berlin ten years ago—studying Cultural History and Theory at Humboldt University. Impressed by some lectures about the history of media, he took advice from Friedrich Kittler and taught himself the basics of electronics and programming. This experimentation with electronics has developed into an obsession- regularly mixing the fumes of solder with the aroma of green tea long into the night.
