My name is Tom and I am Games Design student at UCS. I am also working as an Intern at Ito World, an organisation that specialises in transport data, bus times and data visualisation to make sense of vast amounts of data. Here I’ve been working with in-house tools to design poster templates, display map features, drafting design layouts and contributing to product testing.
I have also been involved with The Mix, a youth organisation that supports young people and encourages them to become more confident, creative and inspires them to achieve what they want. Here, they can meet and attend workshops that are engaging and will develop their personal as well as practical skills. I have been running a game making workshop which has proven to be popular, and we successfully developed a simple Flash game that everybody enjoyed contributing to.
During my time at The Mix I have met fascinating and talented people. My Dissertation proposal will be in collaboration with The Mix bringing in skills and expertise to make a really successful product and something that will be used to promote the organisation. This blog will be regularly updated and will show the journey I’ve been through to get to the final polished piece of work.
