Personal Profile
Joel Arrowsmith-Cooper
I have recently completed a Batchelors Degree in Games Design at the Hull School of Art and Design. As
such, I have experience in all stages of the design process: from forming initial ideas to delivering a
completed project. I enjoy taking on challenges and working to complete tasks and finish projects.
