Using examples from media and her career, Molly Heady-Carroll will take you through her methods of designing memorable creatures designed for purpose and how they can maximize the potential of your IP.
Molly Heady-Carroll has 10 years experience in games and animation as a Creature Designer for projects such as “Tangledeep”, “Zenibeasts” and “Hammerwatch”. She is also the co-founder of games studio Arcane Circus and a creature design instructor at the HKU.
