iRT3D Designer

Overview

At the crossroad between ideas, art and tech – the designer is the visionary who creates emotional, useful and novel experiences for the end user in service of work and play. We help you refine your skillset in a live production pipeline. You’ll work with our lead designer to develop a portfolio piece that demonstrates your ability to go from the first concept to the final pitch, with a working prototype that demonstrates your vision within the game engine.

An iRT3D Designer is capable of more than simply generating cool ideas. They must be able to assess the needs of users and problem-solve within artistic and technical boundaries to find opportunities to enhance the end-user experience. They must also have a good understanding of how their designs bring the 3D visuals, animations and interactive elements together into a cohesive experience that achieves the goals of the project. They must be able to communicate their ideas and consider those of others – be they from fellow designers, artists, developers or outside of the team. It is their responsibility to hold the overall vision and communicate this through words, documentation, visuals and prototypes.

On the iRT3D Design Strand, you will learn to develop professionally on a commercial project, to a high standard, using techniques a hobbyist might otherwise underestimate.

Eligibility

This course is suitable for aspiring designers in England who are 19+ years of age and are serious about a career in the games or immersive industries at the junior or intermediate level.

You should already have some background in learning or applying design fundamentals, through past study and practice, either academically, through an online course or through self-study. Yes, that tabletop DM experience you have will be of use! It would be useful to have at least a basic portfolio (1-2 of your best examples) to be able to demonstrate this. Examples don’t strictly have to be from 3D games: card games, tabletop and other game creations are all useful.

You should be able to attend for 60 hours, either full-time (2 weeks) or part-time (4 weeks) on your selected schedule. Attendance is a crucial factor for success as you will need the time to learn and practice the skills of your discipline to the quality level set in our ongoing assessment.

If you’re not sure you can still apply and a member of the team will discuss the options with you when we call. This will help confirm your eligibility and enable you to pick the course strand that fits your goals.
