Hi, my name is Romello Goodman ( mello good )
I am a creative technologist that primarily works with web technologies. I apply them to a number of different contexts in the hopes of exploring how code and creativity are linked. For labor, I am a senior software engineer at The New York Times working on the UX Foundations team.
Good Graphics is a series of Print and Digital Experiments. Using code I explore research in a growing list of areas such as: Computational Graphic Design, Generative Art, Novel Fabrication Workflows and General Software Mishegas.
A playful creative coding website. Using sliders and various UI paradigms to explore novel interface interactions.

Urban Planning & Codebase Architecture. Or, how not to end up with a Wendy's in the middle of your codebase
When urban planners design cities their decisions are at the scale of decades and millennia. As city’s mature they have to adapt and re-architect to meet changing demographics and use cases. Using Architect Pierre L'Enfant’s design of The United States capital I examine how systems change overtime from their initial ideation. I cover how we as engineers can use urban planning concepts to adapt our codebases and not end up like Washington, DC where 200 years later a Wendy’s food restaurant is located in the middle of one of the city’s busiest traffic circles.
