José Ernesto Rodríguez is a 20 year old, Berlin based designer with Nicaraguan roots who just finished his graphic design studies at the Lette-Verein in Berlin. He grew up bilingual in Hamburg, Berlin and Mexiko City. Due to the artistic embossed German family he early developed an interest in drawing, form-giving and other arts. Especially his grandparents, both sculpture and painters are an important source of inspiration and admiration. While visiting his latin family and traveling through various countries the desire to improve our world in a social, creative and sustainable way has grown enormously. Therefore he will move his focus from graphic design on to product- and social-design.
