Rizmer Capunitan Design Portfolio

Hello, I’m Rizmer Capunitan.

I am a first year BA Product Designer, studying at Nottingham Trent University. I am hoping to develop my existing skills further to prepare myself for working in industry in the following years to come after graduation. My strongest assets are based around my sketch work and ideation process of the projects; however, I have a natural aptitude for graphical presentation and aesthetics which help to keep my work looking crisp. I am currently looking for a design internship to do a minimum 6 month placement, starting July 2019.
