Reid Armansin

Junior UI/UX Designer

Ghent, Belgium
While I have a broad set of design and art skills, my focus is always to create a something of value. In terms of game development, this means an experience that players will remember as enjoyable, worth their time, and ultimately a well-crafted game. As a Designer, I aim to innovate while maintaining, and bettering, seamless gameplay for the player. Alongside this, my goal as an Artist is to create worlds and moments unseen by players, yet ones they feel a part of.
