Big Blue Bubble Creative Director Mark Maia spoke to Max the Mutt students from the Animation and Concept Art programs both about his own career, and the evolution of big Blue Bubble from a 2 person start-up to the expanding, successful game company it is today. Students were especially interested in meeting Mark because “My Singing Monsters,” a recent release, has been a huge success and is very popular with MTM students.
He stressed the opportunities at BBB, and emphasized the company’s dedication to helping employees develop their skills and explore new paths.
All of us enjoyed and were inspired by his presentation. Following the presentation, students were able to have individual portfolio reviews and were given feedback and suggestions on their portfolios. Students graduating in May will be with meeting with other companies as the second semester progresses, leading up to our Industry Event just before graduation.
Thanks to Big Blue Bubble and especially to Mark Maia for an exciting afternoon, and for taking the time to make this visit. Bg Blue Bubble is located in London, Ontario.
