TAMK goes Assembly
Next weekend Hartwall Areena is going to be overrun with computer enthusiasts as the summer's biggest computer and video game related event, Assembly, kicks off. And the students of Media and Interactive Design are going to right there among them. TAMK is one of the sponsors at the event, and the school's participation is being done as a student project, where the students plan and implement TAMK's marketing and presence at the event.
We aren't alone, however. We are cooperating with the Computer Engineering students from the main campus as well as other schools in Finland. TAMK is going to be represented along with other schools that offer game education, KAJAK and Turku Game Tech & Arts Lab. We have a common booth, where we will be showing and playing the games made by the students and giving information on the various programmes in the schools.
Even though this is the first post about the subject, we've been working on the project whole summer. We've been designing badges (see pic), fliers, even got ourselves a sponsorship from ASUS in the form of a touchscreen computer that we will use to run our interactive tour of TAMK Finlayson campus. We're also going to have sweets and other give outs like any good booth.
If you're at Assembly next weekend, come swing by our booth and say hello! If you can't, follow the blog from Thursday to Sunday, we'll be reporting from the event here!
