Hola! I'm Raquel Duncan

A creative designer from Asturias - Spain, living in beautiful New Zealand.

Professional Profile

Having studied in both Madrid and Prague Universities, I'm officially an Architect with a Master degree in Art Direction and Set Design and, unofficially, a self-taught web designer and developer with an extreme interest in problem solving. I'm also very passionate about art, fitness and dance.
Most recently I have been expanding my knowledge in programming languages for websites and apps, user experience and graphic design tools for illustrations.
