Digital product development studio and user experience designers, ustwo, are No 3 in the ‘Design Week top 100 UK Agencies 2017‘. The BA(Hons) in Graphic Arts has links with this studio that go back to 2014 when they visited WSA to talk about the development their multi award winning mobile game, Monument Valley. A conversation after their talk led to year 3 student, Dem Gerolemou landing himself a job at ustwo and since then Dem and fellow designers from the studio have given talks and chaired workshops at WSA on a regular basis.
In March, our students were lucky enough to take part in 3 ustwo related events:
In February, Year 2 students took part in a series of workshops, which allowed them to explore strategies related to collaborative working, paper prototyping and user testing.
Later that month, Dem presented his experiences since joining ustwo and provided tips and advice to our current year 3 students.
Then finally in early March, students from year 1 and year 3 visited the ustwo studios in Shoreditch to taste what it’s like to work in a successful studio. Senior visual designer, Gyppsy then chaired a discussion designed to provide advice and guidance for students wishing to enter the world of digital product development and user experience design.
Many thanks to Gyppsy, Dem and the team – these were invaluable experiences which the students will not forget!
