Interactive Display Window Concept for WeSC

The Interactive Art Director students at Hyper Island have been very busy lately. Among other things, they've produced this interactive display window concept for WeSC. Made by Beatriz Areilza, Gustaf Engström, Juliana Oliveira Silva, Lucas Lima & Marcus Wallander. Nice one!

Happy New Year!

2010 was a busy and super interesting year for Hyper Island. We started 2 new programs, we opened full time offices in the US and UK and for the first time we ran a Hyper Island Master Class in Asia. During the fall we were awarded with two really flattering awards - the Knowledge Award 2010 and Dagens Industri Gazelle 2010. Recently we were featured in Fast Company's "The Future of Advertising" campaign which highlighted the importance of Hyper Island in today's advertising industry and spawned some very interesting discussions.

We're really looking forward to 2011 and many more things to come. Stay tuned - because it will be at least as interesting as 2010!

Happy new year from all your friends at Hyper Island!

Hyper Island Runs a Digital Education Pilot In the UK

In spring 2011 Hyper Island will launch an intensive digital education pilot in the UK. The pilot will run full-time for 5 months at our Manchester base in the Northern Quarter, followed by an industry internship for 3 months.

The pilot will aim toward industry professionals’ who are ready to focus on digital immersion with the central themes of creativity, technology, information society, branding, interactive communication, group dynamics and leadership.

Key players from the digital media industry have worked with Hyper Island to develop this new and innovative pilot programme. The industry has a central role in all Hyper Island ventures, so Hyper Island will recruit both students and industry partners for this pilot. NESTA - the UK's National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts - are supporting the pilot’s first year.

Further program information and details of how to apply will be published in January 2011.
