Hazel O'Keeffe

Hi! I'm Hazel O'Keeffe and when I grow up I want to be taller. I'm originally from Tipperary, where my poor Mam had to spend hours cleaning my drawings off the walls. I have always loved creating things, be it paintings, sketches or more recently websites, animations and games. I've spent three years studying Multimedia in CIT and one year in the Hochschule Darmstadt (Germany) specialising in Game and Animation, a field where I hope to gain employment.

My final year project "Grimm" is a casual game for women from 45 to 60 and I have used a completely user-centered design approach. This hand-illustrated game is a slightly darker take on the fairytales we knew and loved as kids.
