Q&A: Alex Jenkins

Computer Arts: How did you get to where you are today? What is your background?

Alex Jenkins: I first trained as a graphic designer at Nottingham Trent University and then worked in a print-based design studio. After that, I went to Central Saint Martins and did a post-grad certificate in animation. I started freelancing after that, but found myself working increasingly in multimedia, so I started to combine the design skills I had with my love of character illustration and married that with animation skills, too. It's great working at Unit9 because you get mini-projects to work on that you can control yourself, unlike production, where you work on one part of a bigger project.
