The work I've done on all the games is huge to me. But turning the internship into a job is my proudest accomplishment. Chaz Diggs , Level Designer for Fenix Fire Bachelor of Science in Game Art & Design, 2015 , The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire, a campus of Argosy University
Chaz is proud to have earned his current position—he started with the company as an intern. “The work I’ve done on all the games is huge to me.” He draws inspiration from both large and small gaming companies. “People like Team Meat Games who [create] amazing indies are my heroes.”
Chaz, who in 2015 earned a Bachelor of Science in Game Art & Design from The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire, says his instructors provided insight into how to deal with the ins and outs of the gaming industry. “[They] prepared me to deal with the stresses.” Chaz recommends that current students make friends and network at every opportunity. He also says that the evolving world of gaming means that students need to stay on top of trends. “Project Morpheus and Oculus Rift [virtual reality devices] are changing how we want our games to work and allow players to truly become immersed.”
