For the first time Hyper Island will perform a recruitment tour outside Sweden. Starting point for the tour is Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York and London. Together with students, some of the Hyper Island staff will tour four world cities in order to meet up with creative people that are interested in becoming Hyper Island students for the fall 2008.
Hyper Island will run the Digital Media program in Karlskrona and the Interactive Art Director program in Stockholm with an international touch. This means that the two programs are open for English speaking people as private paying students.
