About Carlos Ballena
A young workaholic living cozily in the amazing world of Web Design.
Carlos' interest for computers started very early in life, later on, a passion for art was developed and not wanting to chose, he pursued both lives through Web Design.
In January 2011 Carlos co-founded CrunchyWeb. A small web design company for small businesses. This got him a first taste of the startup world and a better understanding of what it meant to be a web designer.
From 2012 to 2013 he worked with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health as a Web Specialist. This was Carlos' biggest project yet and the most valuable from a learning point of view. His responsibilities included aiding in the redesign process; maintenance and improvement of the school's CSS; design and development of user interfaces; and meeting with clients to help address problems.
From 2014 to 2016 he collaborated with his family in Últimas Noticias Diario, where his sister is the director. The website needed a complete restructure and redesign. They worked every detail of it thoroughly going over what the experience should and what structure made the most sense for the audience. The result was a brand new platform that connected back to their origins by maintaining the colors that's always identified them while looking great across all screen sizes and devices.
Carlos is now working with InterConnecta, a New York based sales and marketing organization, as a Marketing Analyst.
