Home\ UKGF Podcasts\ Episode 9: Diversity, School Workshops and Leading by Example

Helen Andrzejowska is one of the three founders of Ocean Spark Studios, a video game development company formed in late 2016, and based in Huddersfield, Yorkshire.

Helen came from an art background, going on to study Video Game Development at the University of Huddersfield, where she met her two now business partners, Zach and Ellie.

As we’ve heard so far in this series, some game development studios prefer to focus on a niche market, focusing on one particular area of making games, whilst others prefer to take a more all-rounder approach.

So, did Helen herself decide to stick purely to the artistic side of things?

In this episode, we’ll also hear how championing diversity in the industry is central to the ethos of Ocean Spark as a company and how they’re training the game developers of the future by delivering training workshops in schools!
