One of the things we take the most pride in at Gallardo Labs is the talent and diversity of our team. As a truly digital agency, we exist in the digital space, which allows us to work with the best talent across the globe — literally.

From Miami to Los Angeles, Chicago to Bogota, and even Jordan, there’s a team member there, ready to create something you’ve never seen before. As they’re often shedding the proverbial spotlight on whichever product or brand they’re lending their talents to, we thought it was only appropriate to return the favor.

Today’s spotlight falls on Joan Nicolás Avendaño, an Animator and Video Game Developer living in Bogota, Colombia.

Meet Nicolás

Name & Occupation: Joan Nicolás Avendaño, Animator and Video Game Developer

Geographic Location: Bogotá, Colombia.

Why do you choose to work for a digital agency? I really love and appreciate the techniques employed in arts and animation. When I started to draw in high school the possibilities to learn about animation and share your work were very limited because of technology.

Now you can find a lot of information from the masters of many jobs and you can learn directly from them if you work in a digital agency

“I have witnessed the confidence, experience and spirit inside Gallardo Labs. They know how to organize and execute complex ideas, and that gives me confidence.” 

– Joan Nicolás Avendaño, Animator and Video Game Developer

I also enjoy working with people from different places and being able to do animation, which is not an option in some places (in Colombia there are fewer work offers and opportunities in this field).

What makes Gallardo Labs different? I have witnessed the confidence, experience and spirit inside Gallardo Labs. They know how to organize and execute complex ideas and big projects, so it gives me confidence and courage to be part of this special team.

Project you’re most proud of? I’ve worked on educational video games (for the local government here in Colombia) and I’m proud of making useful products for children. My favorite kind of project is working on a video game or a film (I hope I’ll do a movie someday >___<) where I can animate and develop my art.
