We are delighted to showcase the work of the aspiring Games Art & Design 2018 graduating class at the Expo during this year’s Develop Conference.
Our course is the winner of this academic year’s TIGA Best Educational Institution Award, and our stand will be exhibiting work spanning a range of game genres and design styles from concept to prototypes.
Develop is a great opportunity for students to hear from some of the biggest names in the European games industry and network with professionals from studios large and small as well as indie developers. The quality of ideas, design and execution from this year’s graduates is exceptional and we’re looking forward to introducing them to visitors and industry representatives at the most prestigious and energising of the games industry events.

Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
Develop is important – the networking is very important. And go to talks they’re inspiring and get your creative juices flowing, they can make you think and you’ll learn how other people do things.
A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers who are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
We are so lucky to have Develop here in the UK. It’s a unique event where you can come and discover new things with people who care passionately about video games. It’s a sea full of new ideas.
Develop is a really great way to network, it’s also great for going to talks and finding that little tip that you didn’t know before and thinking – oh I’ll bring that back to the team!
It’s really nice to see some of the younger people in our studio come to Develop, interact with other people in the dev community and make new contacts. I think it’s really important to learn from other people.
Develop always gets put in the diary. There are many reasons to be here, not just the talks, but the networking, people exchanging ideas about where the industry is right now and where it’s going to. It’s pretty essential to be here I think.

Develop is the must-attend event for the games industry in the UK. It’s where we all come together and learn from each other. It’s the best way into the industry and it’s the best place to learn from your colleagues.
There really is a huge mix of people at Develop - loads of peers that you can learn from and the perfect blend of every element of game development as well.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2020 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
