Description

Do we all need a bit on the side?
At the next Open House on Thursday 31 August we'll be discussing how a bit on the side might be what we all need. Introducing the marvellous...

Shay Moradi. Designer, developer, educator, art-maker and all-round geeky gamer with an enviable skill for turning side projects into paid projects.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to play the worlds biggest game of PAC-MAN? Or create a Battlefield 3 simulator that feels so real you start to question reality? Or even how much fun it would be to remotely control a full size MINI? Well, Shay can tell you.

Shay is a man with an insatiable thirst for learning, and along with his colleagues at Running In The Halls, an interactive design and development agency, he creates digital experiences like no other.

Since 2008 when he was the Digital Media Design course leader at the University of Huddersfield, he’s moved on to designing products for companies such as Rolls Royce, Wella, Ford and Channel 5.

Join us to hear Shay talk about side projects, serendipity and VR, about how he finds opportunities through chance, AND how our brains thrive on novelty and neophilia.

When and where
Thursday 31 August 2017, 6-7.30pm.
