Uclan Games Design Degree Show 2013

The Games Design Degree Show was officially opened on Friday 14th June and it was a very lively and busy evening.
There was a broad variety of student work on show and guests flooded in to see the artwork banners, play the board games, meet the challenges of the playable levels and enjoy the atmosphere.There was a conglomeration of music, laughter and discussion across our large games studio where the show was held.
Once again , it was so obvious that there's a real community spirit in the Uclan games course, it's a great big family, where students share ideas and skills and enjoy playing and working together in a large community.

To make the night even more of a success, our games student,  
Andrea Wastlund was selected out of many contenders to receive the  
Creative Festival Design Award and was presented with an engraved glass trophy by Vice Chancellor, Dr. Malcolm McVicar for her achievement. 
This is the second year in a row that we have won this award for games design!

For those who were unable to visit the shows during the Creative Festival week,
below are examples of student banners from the private view of the Games Design Show 2013. These were exhibited alongside books, pitch documents, 3d prints and a medley of digital work displayed on screen.
