About Me

My name is Jose Plata. I'm a Designer & Developer passionate for all-things-digital and human-computer interaction.

I love working on digital products with a strong focus on UX/UI and user centered design. My main area of expertise revolves around strategic design and research, but I love jumping on the code bandwagon and fiddle with HTML, CSS and Javascript for front-end development or creating little web apps with a Ruby on Rails back-end. I also have a serious relationship with photography and traveling.



FOUNDFRAME is a photography magazine & web application designed to help art lovers find and schedule visits to specialized galleries and exhibitions.


As a lover of photography (and the arts in general), I am in the constant search of exhibitions happening around the city I'm living in. However, when I came to NYC, I realized there was not an easy way of finding about about showings, galleries, timetables or openings. I started developing FOUNDFRAME with a focus on photography, but with the possibility of making it scalable towards many more art forms and locations.
