My name is Zia, and I am an artist working in video game development and graphic design. In both my personal practice and my client work, I aspire to create beautiful, accessible designs which tell intriguing, effective stories.
I came to the MA Graphic Arts course with an interdisciplinary background in performance art, theatrical lighting design, sociology, and illustration. This background provided me with a strong base of creative problem-solving skills, and it gave me a unique angle from which to hone my design and game development skills.
Whatever medium I use, I am passionate about finding ways to communicate my
queer experience, to connect present-day issues to the lessons of history, and to create beauty and hope in these apocalyptic times. My latest work is an interactive fiction game entitled Princess in the Tower Block, which combines these through a modern queer story interwoven with a Jewish folktale.
