I am Taura Hanson, a Digital Designer living in Dubai. This is a far cry from the tiny mining town known as Flin Flon in northern Manitoba, Canada, where I grew up. I received a Diploma with Honors from the Digital Design program at Vancouver Film School (VFS) in April, 2010, which is no small feat. VFS is an incredible school and it is there I discovered I love Digital Design and hope to specialize in this area.
I have always had a love for design. In fact I won my first award at age 14 designing a Sun-ice winter jacket. I enjoy a good challenge, so a career as a designer fits me perfectly. Every day I solve problems in clever and innovative ways. I’m also a bit of a risk taker. Whether it’s filling out my crosswords in ink, or developing an interactive story through Flash with augmented reality, I like taking a chance no matter what the outcome if it means I learn something in the process.
I co-created an interactive storybook involving mini flash games and augmented reality. The technical and team-oriented skills I learned during that project were invaluable. I love working collaboratively and look forward to joining a creative team that really challenges me. I am currently looking for a work environment that encourages creativity, has a sense of humour, and promotes mentorship and continuous learning.
