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.



MIXT is a personal project developed along with Joe Giglio to try out our first full WebApp using Ruby on Rails and streaming services' API. Being both lovers of music and Cassette Tapes, we decided to build a Vaporwave looking platform that allows users to create and customize digital mixtapes (~10 songs limit) that they can share with their friends and loved ones, or just keep them on their own digital shelves ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ who knows.

“That's one of the great things about music. You can sing a song to 85,000 people and they'll sing it back for 85,000 different reasons” – Dave Grohl
