TOP BBC JOB FOR MULTIMEDIA GRADUATE

 

An Interactive Multimedia graduate from the University of Humberside has landed a top job in a fiercely competitive industry as a designer for BBC Interactive Television.

 

Lucy Harding (23) from York studied BA (Hons) Interactive Multimedia at the Hull School of Art and Design and is now enjoying a successful career in London. “I love working in this industry,” she said. “It’s new, really exciting and London is definitely the place to be.”

 

This is Lucy’s first job since graduating with a first-class honours degree last July and she is still surprised at how quickly her career has progressed. “Studying Interactive Multimedia gave me a real head-start,” she said. “I was able to present a project which I undertook as part of the course to re-design ‘Top of the Pops 2’ for interactive television.”

 

Award co-ordinator Sarah Humphreys commented: “This is brilliant news – Lucy’s success is well deserved. She is one of our first cohort of students to graduate and I’m hearing really positive feedback about all of their careers.

 

“Other graduates have found jobs with high-profile companies such as Cimex Media (new media) and Blue Marble UK (interactive advertising).”

 

BA (Hons) Interactive Multimedia was launched at the Hull School of Art and Design in 1998. The three-year degree course focuses on electronic or ‘new’ media - the future of design.
