Updated brochure for 2020

It was time to update our two-fold brochure, to incorporate information about the Master programme, our new Games & Society Lab, and general nips-and-tucks. Here’s how the folder looks in practice:

We also took the opportunity to update the front art with student games from the previous year. We kept the 2018 one (Bolt & Bobby) but added Sunset Mystery (2019) and Strig & Kabu (2019).

And here’s the updated insert:

We also needed new t-shirts since the previous design was a giant flop (big print over the chest made it act and feel like wearing a bib). We kept it clean and simple:

We had some ideas for a more ambitious design refresh, but we need all of this stuff before March when GDC and all other things happen so we let that plan slide for now. 🙂

This year we went another route with our advert. After we participated in co-founding the Higher Education Video Game Alliance in New York last autumn, and have continued to work on our new (international!) bachelor and future master degree, we felt it was time to start specifically positioning ourselves as the international choice. Here’s the ad, what do you think? Does it get the idea across?

Uppsala Universities game design educations are the one truly international choice  - for swedish developers who want to make a career abroad, or foreign students wanting to break into Scandinavia.

The PC Gamer education special is out later this month. We’re trying to make potential students aware of the demands of our education, so the slackers can self-select themselves out of applying here. Hopefully the tone and message of these ads will resonate more with the people who are trying to achieve something with their education, rather than the ones only looking to spend a few more years in the familiar comfort of the public education system.

Slackers? Stay home.
Motivated and hard working? Show us by speaking up, attending our conference and then apply and help us explore the potential of this medium!

GAME Recruitment Flyer 2013

We’ve just created a new recruitment brochure for the department. We’ll bring these with us to Tekniska Museet at the end of this week, and Gamex next week. But you can have a web-friendly PDF too, of course. 🙂

This years version skips the bit on entrepreneurship, incubators and startups. These are still very much a part of what we do, of course, but we feel it’s more important to talk about our expectations on incoming students, and give concrete tips on how to prepare for our educations.

And we’re of course very happy to put Genusföretagarna (“the Gender Businesses”) front-and-center. We know that our gaming communities are filled with diverse participants and as a mature education we are committed to the presence and contributions of all people. By proudly displaying we’re an ally and actively engage with the issues of inclusion, we can improve the experiences of all community members, and thereby improve the culture.

In short; the 2013 version is more serious, and more responsible. We hope it carries our message clearly, leaves a good impression and attracts the right kind of students. 🙂
