Oliver Korssjøen Artist Mascot Design Winner

What brought me to the Inland University and what positive experiences have I created here: What brought me here was my passion for art and design — particularly my interest in concept art. Over time, I have grown to respect, learn and love other aspects of the audiovisual arts and technologies as well.

Miriam Landsnes Heldal Mascot Winner, Student in Animation and Digital Art

For the future I hope to get a job in a company focusing on digital entertainment for Kids such as Ravn Studio, Qvisten Animation, or something similar as I’d love to make something that kids will love and remember fondly as they grow up, just like I still love Kaptein Sabeltann and Josefine, which to me are childhood icons.
