UNIVERSITY FORMS LINKS WITH MEDIA COMPANY

 

A feature in the Hull Daily Mail has led to a relationship between the Hull School of Art and Design and one of the region’s growing multimedia companies.

 

The article led Interactive Multimedia course leader Sarah Humphreys to contact Linx Visual Media in Barton-on-Humber and now graduate Martin Miller (22) from County Armagh has been taken on as a graphic designer with more work placements in the pipeline.

 

Linx specialise in new media communication solutions for businesses in areas such as TV production, computer graphics, virtual reality and multimedia.

 

“It’s great to find out that there is a wealth of graduates in Hull with multimedia experience,” commented Managing Director John Baxter.

 

“I want to encourage the students to come and see what we do as we like to recruit locally.”

 

Martin Miller is thoroughly enjoying his new job. “Sarah introduced me to the company and I had a good feel about them. The job also relates closely to my degree.

 

“The course was excellent – it’s opened up a wealth of opportunities and is also very industry-focussed with a range of experts visiting us regularly.”

 

Sarah Humphreys added: “I’m really pleased for Martin. He did so well in achieving a first class honours degree. John Baxter has been so supportive - I’m looking forward to building on the relationship we’ve formed with the company.”
