d3t welcomes Dan Haslop, Senior UI Artist
23rd Nov 2022
Please detail a bit of information about your experience/career background?
I started my career in the game industry around 15 years ago as 3D Artist, however, after a few years of doing 3D art, I realised that I liked the UI aspect of game development more and decided to therefore transition over to UI art – since taking this decision I haven’t looked back!
I was immediately drawn to the opportunity of being part of studio that works a wide range of projects, whilst also working with and learning from a lot of amazingly talented people.
What do you love about games?
What I love about games the most is the unique way in which games tell a story – this is what hooks me. Don’t get me wrong, I do love other mediums, but what sets games apart is that they offer a sense of immersion unlike anything else in my opinion.
What games are you currently playing, and what is your favourite game?
Shadow of the Colossus is my favourite game of all time, however, the game that I’ve put the most time into is definitely Pokémon Go.
Do you have any fun facts or hobbies?
I love spending time with my son, we are always making things, exploring and going to theme parks!
