A Comic Shop
Bootstrapped and ready for action!
My first serious attempt at using bootstrap, this site is meant to prove to myself that I have enough self-restraint to create a website completely grounded in reality.
A simpe blog.
A slight departure from my "make everything different" philosophy, this is my attempt at building a responsive WordPress-esque blog from scratch and without looking up any references.
You Are What You Eat
A provocative piece of uhh...something.
First attempt at printmaking. Lots of blood, sweat, and more blood.
Poster For Tomorrow Entry
A poster to raise awareness for the state of sweatshop workers in Bangladesh and around the world.
Valencia Dance Rebrand
Clean design in motion.
An identity aiming to represent the gender-neutral dance program at Valencia College.
A dynamic, modern news reader.
A yet-unfinished proof-of-concept webapp for reading articles with greater ease. No harsh bright screen, no infinite-width lines of text. Now if only WebKit's compositioning engine would cooperate for a minute...
Luma on Park
Fine wine and American cuisine.
A proof of concept on creative navigation, this restaurant website aims to make traversing menus and image slides feel tangible.
The Drunken Monkey
A remixed version of the Luma on Park site with a shot of caffine.
Street Fighter II: Browser Edition
Ryu vs. Ken! Who will win?
First attempt at making a jQuery plugin and first time dealing with sprites. It went okay.
Electronic Frontier Foundation
With the NSA spying on us, who will protect our privacy?
This responsive single-page site, made in the wake of the Edward Snowden leaks, aims to inform the public of their individual rights and introduce a nonprofit dedicated to protecting them.
Fully responsive, fully modern.
What happens when you transform the newspaper-esque layout of Craigslist and rotate it 90 degrees? You get a dynamic layout optimized for modern devices.
Save The Arts!
An unsolicited campaign for United Arts.
United Arts is a non-profit agency dedicated to raising money for arts and science organizations.
Marx and Lennin
Authoritatively good fashion.
A digital storefront for a fictional footwear company. If only I could afford any of it...
Judge Jury and Executioner
Flash tweens running Amok.
An Atoms for Peace/Thom Yorke fan "video".
A spoiler-free resource.
Made out of necessity, this can be used to flick around the map of the A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones universe. "So that's where Bear Island is!"
Calvin and Hobbes
A Flash site
A Flash project that never quite worked how I expected it. ActionScript is dead, long live ActionScript!
A love story.
Just a few scalable vectors animated with CSS transitions sprinkled with a little bit of jQuery.
A relic of times past.
A band site made with soul power.
One of my first websites. All interactive elements are pure CSS.
Has this parallax trend gone off the deep end?
Messing around with SVG, delaunay triangulation and Skrollr. Not much in terms of content, but what's there is pretty.
Ruben Del Rio
I design experiences. No pretension, no candy-coated buzzwords, just pure unbridled passion. I let my work speak for itself and never pretend to know more than the next guy. To the contrary, I’m a big fan of honest feedback, learning new things, and enjoying life to the fullest. Hire a designer, not a salesman.
