Tono Cisneros details himself as a “human-based designer.” Tono volunteered to improve online educational materials for the Ecotone Apprenticeship Program, where he found the perfect conduit to begin honing his unconventional approach to generating online educational material. The program has enhanced his design skills, given him the first-hand experience on how young humans can learn physical trade work via online platforms, and implanted a rooted understanding of current digital educational needs. He hopes to continue translating the in-person Ecotone Training into a virtual medium, a series of engaging and digestible tutorials.
