Wes Ruvalcaba's presence inspires better design. He pushes the project forward with his detail orientated knowledge on all fronts: design, development, color theory, user interface etc. His opinion is invaluable to those he has worked with and his work extraordinary.Andrew Porter, Art Director at Resource Interactive
Wes Ruvalcaba is a designer/developer gone front-end developer. He started building web sites in the 90's to show off his drawings and continued designing and building personal web sites until it became his career. Wes has a strong love for front-end coding, user experience, drawing and pixel painting. He has been working in Drupal since version 6 when he started with Highlights for Children. There he led five web site redesigns, a large content data restructuring, and executed a myriad of online campaigns all leveraging Drupal.
Wes taught Web Design and Illustration Portfolio for three years at the Columbus College of Art & Design where he received his degree in Illustration. He still takes the opportunity to help teach or train when it presents itself.
Wes lives in Columbus, Ohio with his dog Lily. His hobbies include drawing, painting and nerdering. He told us "the answers are: 42, Star Trek, Rolling Stones, and 'Yes, but only on Saturdays'".
Wes has a BFA in Illustration, where he focused on being a children's book illustrator.
