Who I am

Hi, I'm Nicole Lopez, and I’m a marketing and interactive designer! I’ve been working at Playdots, a mobile game company under Zynga and Take-Two Interactive, as a marketing designer. Before that, I was graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2021 where I studied New Media Design with minors in the Japanese language as well as Game Design. I'm searching for a new full-time position in the field of design and am available to start in January 2023.


What I do

I have a strong passion for design, no matter the field. My main goal is to create designs that make people happy! In other words, I want to design things that bring enjoyment to others by making things more usable, making things more fun, and of course, making things look more beautiful.


More about me

I am a total nerd: I love playing tabletop games, video games, and watching Japanese anime. I also enjoy singing both American pop and Japanese pop songs, so I'm always down for karaoke!
