About Joseph

Hi! I’m Joseph Ricafort and I design and develop stuffs that involves visualizing complex information. I love to express my thoughts and ideas about society, culture and technology through visualizations, interactions and experiences.

I started to gain interest in visuals during my college days. I worked part-time as a freelance presentation designer, improving PowerPoint slides for small businesses through oDesk (currently Upwork). Then, I continued learning Adobe Illustrator at my own pace so that I could start creating infographics, which I become hooked with. Recently, I have been continuously improving my web development skills with Javascript and D3.

I completed Bachelor’s Degree in Electronics Engineering at Central Philippine University, Iloilo City, Philippines. I have worked with a huge semiconductor company and a newly established tech startup before I decided to work both as an analytical and a creative designer/developer.
