Global Game Jam 2021

In late January, I participated in a game jam as the lead artist for the game's visuals and contributed to the 3D models. It was a rewarding experience, and I got to network with talented peers I synchronised to finish the game on time. The game was called Duck trip, the goal of the game was for the player to reach the owner, but this was cut due to time constraints.

"Zain was always punctual and actively seeked to aid the students in class with issues they might have. He did this by offering technical advice on the use of software tools (e.g. Maya), practical advice from his experience or by alerting me that a student required my attention. Overall, I am satisfied with Zain's performance as a success coach in my classes."

Manfredo Meraviglia / senior lecturer in the School of Computing and Digital Media, 

Zain carried out his duties precisely, with a positive attitude. He completed all his shifts and worked incredibly well with other colleagues. He easily picked up the key messages and was always clear and direct with students in a way that helped them understand how to complete the tasks that have been set for them.
