In the month of October the Founder and Creative Director of Mind Traveler Design, Anwar Bey-Taylor was invited to Hoyes Diseno in the country of Colombia to present and lead a workshop on character development for video games.



Here are his thoughts on his experience with Hoyes Desino.

“Hoyes Desino at Universidad Icesi, in Cali, Colombia was a spectacular experience! The students were very passionate and confident in the way they retained the information and in the questions they asked. They were completely engaged and excited about video game development on all levels, especially character design and development. They are progressing wonderfully towards the cutting edge of technology and I am so very excited to experience what they create in the coming years. I have no doubt it will be nothing short of incredible.”

Here are some photos from the event. As you can see the energy was monstrously magnificent.

“Colombia is an enchanting experience. I have meet numerous amounts of creative young students and developers who are absolutely excited to continue learning and soon share their ideas with the world. Colombia is a country of immaculate beauty and joy, it radiated within the people everywhere I visited through out the entire trip. I look forward to visiting Colombia again and helping them create magical stories and entertainment that will influence the world.” – Anwar Bey-Taylor
