Ryan graduated from the BA (Hons) Game Art degree at University Centre St Helens and has since secured an impressive position as a 3D Games Designer with a creative studio based in Liverpool.

The BA (Hons) Game Art degree, designed by game art experts, provides students with specialist training to become a professional games artist in the industry.

This distinctive degree offers an opportunity to complete an internship with innovative games developer, Atomicom, situated within the Northwest’s creative hub, Liverpool.
