Hey, I’m Rebecca - and I’m a first year student, studying interaction design at Northumbria! Before coming to university, I studied A-Levels in PE, Business and ICT. I live down by the north east coast in Whitley Bay. I would say, I chose interaction design because it combined the arts of graphics with the technology of ICT that I had studied previously, and did well in. My favourite aspect of the subject so far has to be the broad nature of the subject - there is so many areas to discover and learn about. My Favourite food is Chicken Kebab.
Hey, I’m Sam and I study Interaction design at university. Before coming to university I did A-levels in Maths, Computing and Graphic design, after finishing my A-levels I took a year out where I got a job with an in house graphic design team at an e-commerce company. Working there really re-enforced that design is my passion but also allowed me to afford to travel. My other big passion is snowboarding and I spent three months of my year out becoming a snowboarding instructor at Lake Louise in Canada. I like long walks on the beach.
What’s up? I’m James and I’m currently studying Interaction Design at Northumbria University. I am from Hexham, Northumberland, before I came to Uni I studied A-Levels in Creative Media, IT and Graphic Design. I’ve always had an interest in hands on subjects so choosing Interaction Design blends in a mix of Graphics and IT into one however I’d say I prefer the Graphic and Design side of the course but I’m enjoying using new pieces of software including the extended range of the Adobe Suite and Camtasia, My favorite food is lasagna.
