I play games. I make games. I have the best job in the world.
My name is Dominique Ferland, and I’m a 29 years old game designer - I make games and art under the pseudonym Dom2D. At the age of 6, I was drawing dozens of Mario Bros. levels on loose sheets of paper. Through high school, I came up with card games and forced my friends to test them out. In collage, I moved into advertising and graphic design but kept playing video games and board games.
Weird thing is, it never occured to me that I could make games for a living - not until I got a random contract job to do the mock-up screen of a Price is Right game for local start-up company called Ludia, here in Montreal. I started as a 2D and UI artist in the industry, but quickly realized game design was my calling.[…]
Moshboy did an interview with my friend Dom2D!
