I'm Dennis Cortés, a designer that codes, teaches, and makes music in Los Angeles

I currently lead the product design team at Mothership, produce music as Cordio, make products at Trademarked, and run my Patreon. I've been designing for 8+ years and coding for 4+ years. I specialize in design, mainly working in product design for both the web and mobile apps. I have extensive experience with both visual and interaction design, design systems, user research, branding, shipping products, React, CSS architecture, and component systems.

I have produced 9 albums, blending elements from electronic, ambient, jazz, lofi, and hip-hop under the alias Cordio. I also design album covers, mix and master for others, and make music for films, shows, and podcasts. Listen to all my music anywhere you stream music, or snag some on my Bandcamp.

Through my Patreon community I create detailed tutorials on design and music production, offer my source files, music breakdowns, and more! I also curate inspiration through multiple blogs including Illustree.
