Student Profile: Godfrey Oluikpe
I am a designer, an entrepreneur and a technologist. My professional career and training has crisscrossed disciplines like education, management, health sciences and community development. The Masters in Creative Technologies has helped me acquire specific skills and competencies but also infuse multidisciplinary perspective which is highly required in my work. My skills and areas of interest cover but are not limited to video and studio production, sound production, graphics, web design and development, human computer interaction and interactivity above all the business side of creative business. Some of my works so far include brand management for a start-up business, a documentary on black student community in Leicester, a prototype for a web-based app for collaboration. I am also exploring sound data processing and the interactivity between sound and image using an interactive software - Max/Msp/jitter. I like to explore and play with ideas using different tools and technologies and this helps to stir the creative side of me. I believe that everybody is inherently creative and that the flame of creativity is fanned at all times in life through different experiences.
Keywords: Interactivity, video editing, graphics design, brand management, digital marketing, research and consultancy.
