Uncorked Studios

Marcelino is Founder and CEO of Uncorked Studios, a product design agency focused on the intersection between people and the physical environments in which they use products. He believes in a world where innovation applies to entrepreneurs, non-profits, and the world’s largest brands in equal measure.

Uncorked collaborates with some of the world’s top brands, including Google, Intel, adidas, and Samsung, to prototype and develop smart home, mobile, and web products.

Previously, Marcelino served as Executive Interactive Producer at Wieden + Kennedy. He produced the Nike Chalkbot, a robot which printed messages of hope and inspiration on the Tour de France in 2009 and 2010.
