I am Victor

Technical Artist & Designer

I am a professional Technical Artist / Designer currently located in Seattle. My specialization lies within 2D/3D content creation and UI/UX. I have 10+ years of experience developing content for multimedia software ranging from telecommunication applications to video games. I am equipped with a versatile skillset and have a constant thirst for learning. I am always going beyond my comfort zone to pursue new skills, but as an avid learner, I'm never content with just skimming along the surface; I will always take the extra step to dig deeper and understand the subject.

If you think we can work together, do not hesitate to contact me.
