Glowmade Towers (*Ahem* the NEW Glowmade HQ!) is home to a team of talented and passionate creators, and support staff.

Their creativity and talent bubbles over into our games and studio culture daily, and – frankly – we all benefit from it!

Our small (but mighty!) Team contains some of the very nicest people in the games industry, the type you’d just love to introduce to your Grandma for Sunday lunch… she digs games, right? Right – who doesn’t?!

It’s always fascinating to understand what makes people tick, and today’s Getting To Know-made (do you get it?) is with senior 2D/3D Artist, Paul –

We start at the start, as per, so what’s your role at Glowmade Paul?

I’m the Senior 2D/3D artist at Glowmade.

Tell us a little about how you ended up making games for a living?

After uni I applied to Lionhead. It was my first application and I got the job. I guess I took it for granted as I was… young and not short of confidence lets say. In retrospect I was incredibly lucky so I feel more stoked today about my first job that I did back then.
