STUDENT PROFILE

JACK STALKER What do you enjoy most about your course? I want to go into games design so I enjoy 3D modelling the most as I like visualising 2D concepts and putting them into 3D models. What’s your favourite thing about The Northern School of Art? I absolutely love the friendly vibe, everyone knows everyone and it’s not too daunting! Compared to other colleges I looked at, I felt very at home here. What are your next steps? I want to go and study game art for video games, which is 3D modelling and 3D design for video games. What's surprised you about your time here? I didn’t realise how much depth we’d cover in interactive design, all of the techniques and how much software we had.
