Val's portrait
Hello world!

My name is Val Isautier and I'm a Game Design student at CNAM-ENJMIN, graduating in 2019. I'm looking for a 6-month internship as a Game or Level Designer starting in March 2019.

I'm a former front-end web developer, and I graduated from my engineering school, ECE Paris, in 2016. I have a strong background in web and software development, but Game Design has always been my true passion.

Player experience is one of my main concerns. I want to create emotions, sensations, memories, and make the players feel by playing my games.

By designing levels, worlds and mechanics, I aim to create experiences that will deeply touch the players.
