WHAT THE UX SPACECAMP CAN DO FOR YOU

 

Thomas C. – App Developer Mentee

 

“I was fresh out of art school, totally left out to dry, no idea where to go or what to do. John didn’t just teach me the skills I would need in a brand new career, he taught me the ins and outs of what its like to be on a team. When I finally got my first industry job, it fit like a glove because I knew so much more than just making portfolio pieces.”

 

Jillian T. – Game Developer Mentee

 

“I’ve always loved games since I was a little girl. I never thought I could make them. After Covid hit I was furlonged and decided to try for my dream job. The UX Spacecamp was a godsend, John constantly taught me knew things about design, art, interaction… I learned more than I ever would have in any class and I kept myself and my family safe. “

 

Will L. – App Developer Mentee

 

“I’m an OLD Print guy and well, print ain’t exactly coming back. So I knew I wanted to take the design skills I had and make them work for me. John made the transition silky smooth, and his kits and guides made me feel like I had a cheat code for the game of life. Went from terrified to make a UX career change to confident literally overnight. AAA+, would learn from again.”

 

Amitt M. – Game Developer Mentee

 

“I live in Hyderabad, India aspiring to be a game developer working in the United States. With Covid19 making everyone work remotely (and making classrooms unsafe), I loved the UX Spacecamp. In spite of the time difference, John was there with a smile and so much incredible information that within months, I had my first remote game job in Seattle!”

ABOUT YOUR MENTOR - ART DIRECTOR JOHN BURNETT

Hello again! My name is John Burnett, and this is my UI UX mentorship program. I started this to be the kind of person I wished I had in my corner when I was first starting off. When I was applying there were no standards, no rules, and no in-roads to a career in UI UX Design for apps and games. In spite of that, I’ve enjoyed a meteoric rise in my career from entry-level artist to Art Director in under a decade. And now, working on my own remotely and teaching for the past decade, I’m on a whole new level. 

 

I have a Bachelors in Psych and a Masters in Fine Arts in Graphic Design from the University of Illinois Chicago. My first job was as an entry-level UI Artist at Midway games, then as a Senior UI Artist at Electronic Arts, then a Lead UI Artist at id Software, and then as a UI UX Director at Glu Mobile. In that time I worked on console, PC, mobile and web projects and… well, really anything with a pixel.

 

And very little changed once I started working remotely. For the past 10 years I’ve worked with Activision, Microsofot, King, Google, and more indies and startups than I can count. But it’s the mentorships that I’m most proud of. Ushering in the next generation of artists and innovators while keeping them safe and motivated is thrilling.
