With over 40 years experience in networks, software and web development, as well as a background in Biology and computer simulations, Ricardo Ruggiero brings not only a seasoned approach to the team, but also a fresh perspective on website creation and development. To him, coding is like art, you paint on a canvas with classes and functions, to achieve in code what the Art Designers imagine. He also believes that websites should have a real purpose in a business or profession, and works with clients to define and to reach it. He believes that the artists vision is always achievable, it is only a matter of working together and listening. Burning the midnight oil is not uncommon, as to him, achieving the goals of his clients is paramount.

Art/Web Designer & Photographer
As a third-generation family artist, Max carries on the creative tradition inspired by his grandfather, a well-known illustrator in the early 20th century and his father, a commercial photographer during the booming post-war period. Max grew up in his father’s dark room and spent much of his youth creating, drawing and ad layouts inspired by the design and photo annuals that littered his family home. After tiring of his freelance graphic designer career, he returned to photography. Now, as a photographer with many years of design experience, he understands not only the technical, aesthetic, and stylistic concerns of creating stunning images, but also the practical aspects of how his photos ultimately need to integrate with typography and web platforms.
