Graduate contributes to LittleBigPlanet graphic design challenge
Anglia Ruskin University BA (Hons) Graphic Design graduate Matt Power’s contribution to a handheld version of the game LittleBigPlanet has helped win his team at SCE Cambridge Studio (Sony Computer Entertainment Europe) a BAFTA. The studio was delighted to be nominated for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts in two categories 'Best Handheld' and 'Use of Online', going on to win in the former category.
As the sole Graphic Designer working on LittleBigPlanet, Matt was responsible for designing everything from icons for menus, small pieces of motion graphics, the logo and packfront – right down to the little stickers that are used throughout the game.
As Matt explains:
He is now engaged on a new project, TV Superstars due for release in autumn 2010.
Matt visits Cambridge School of Art at Anglia Ruskin University annually as a visiting lecturer to update the graphic design undergraduates on his career with Sony and developments in the industry.
About Matt’s achievement Jon Melton, Pathway Leader for the BA (hons) Graphic Design said:
Matt’s success is yet further proof that the design skills upon which Cambridge School of Art places great importance are highly sought after in today’s creative industries.
