About Me.
I'm Phillip Nievera Retuta, and yes, my parents named me after their country of origin, the Philippines. Clever folk. I'm a 26-year-old graphic designer, illustrator, web designer, and cartoonist with an inexplicable English Lit degree. I'm currently living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and attaining my Masters of Fine Arts at Parsons The New School For Design. I enjoy root beer, music that doesn't make sense, and black iced coffee. I'm thinking of writing and designing a cookbook, just because I don't have enough projects I'm working on. I'm probably the number one search when you type "retuta" on Google. So yeah, I'm awesome.
