He's a good creative thinker with the right skills to execute his thoughts.

During Ben's internship at Vitamin he approached his responsibilities with creativity and diligence. He worked on a number of projects and tasks including conceptual branding, wireframing and UX/UI design for both websites and mobile apps. He's a good creative thinker with the right skills to execute his thoughts. I wish him all the best in the future.
