Profiles

Liam Wong - BA Computer Arts, 2010
What does your current job involve?

I work at Ubisoft Montreal, the studio responsible for games like Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, Watch Dogs, Child of Light and Rainbow Six. As Graphic Design Director: I define, develop and direct visual identities for AAA video games, ranging from art direction to graphic design, branding, UI, UX and marketing.

What is your lasting impression of Dundee and Abertay?

It was instrumental. From graduating at Abertay to becoming Ubisoft’s youngest director in the space of two and a half years; everything I knew about working in teams, leadership, planning, presenting my work and giving direction was picked up from my experience at Abertay. I still have plenty of ties to Dundee. Even though I live over 3000 miles away now, I find myself coming back to Abertay. I love returning to Dundee when I can, meeting students and doing what I can to help them pursue their own careers.

Do you have any advice for students?

Find the path that is right for you, do what you love and the rest will fall into place. Figure out what excites you, motivates you and be proactive on improving on those things every single day. There’s no such thing as talent, it’s all about mileage. Dundee is full of opportunities, make the most of them and get in touch if I can help in any way.
