That’s a wrap

2019 Interns

This summer, no fewer than four University of Kent students have spent time in the Arcade office. The university’s pioneering Employability Points scheme challenges students to earn ‘points’ through co-curricular activities that qualify them to apply for experience opportunities, such as those with Arcade.

Supath Shrestha en Joram Antwi each joined us for two week work experience positions, and Emily Williams committed most of her summer – eight weeks – to being the Arcade intern! Most recently, Sean Massey came to the end of his work experience, bringing our summer programme to a close.

He said, “Prior to my time at Arcade I was hesitant about a career in marketing due to my degree not being directly related. However, thanks to my experience here I have become more confident in my abilities, taking on roles in market research and being giving a variety of different responsibilities; including looking into the company’s brand identity and creds deck.

“I feel I have not only developed myself personally but, working alongside Alex, have gained vital knowledge that I will be able to use and adapt to different scenarios in the future. I aim to further develop myself as a marketer and strategist to eventually gain a role within the industry.”

We were blown away by all of their commitment and dedication, each finding ways to contribute hugely to our immersive technology business and, we hope, learning a bit along the way too.

We thank all four of them for all their hard work and wish them all the very best for the future, which looks incredibly bright.

Thanks Joram!

Joram Antwi

Joram Antwi was the latest University of Kent student to join Arcade on work experience this summer, having been studying Computer Science. He had this to say about his experience:

“My time in Arcade was very productive,  I spent my two weeks working on a live project built with AR foundation in Unity. I managed to develop a working prototype by the end of my period, which felt very rewarding to complete with the knowledge and time I had.  Through my journey developing the application and learning on the go, I found it fun to see it slowly come to life as I broke through road blocks of code.  Through my experience I have discovered many areas I need to progress in, to become a better developer. I remain passionate in pursuing a future of developing creative applications that add value to people’s lives and productivity.”

Thanks for your commitment and great work, Joram, and all the very best of luck for the future.

Welcome, Emily Williams!

Emily Williams

Please join us in welcoming Emily Williams, our second intern from the pioneering Employability Points Scheme at the University of Kent. Emily is with Arcade for eight weeks, and we asked her to tell us a bit more about herself and her aspirations.

I landed the internship with Arcade through my University’s Employability Points scheme, which rewards students for doing extra-curricular activities. I have a real passion for theatre and in my first year at university I directed a play and performed in six others in theatres across Canterbury. I also became social media co-ordinator for the University’s student newspaper. As a result I was eligible to apply for internships, and the opportunity to work for Arcade was too good to miss!

I have worked in a range of creative industries, from digital marketing agencies to publishing companies and film productions. Each job has given me a different insight into content creation. 


When I first applied to Arcade, my only experience with immersive tech was the Derren Brown Ghost Train ride at Thorpe Park. I could hear the screams from down the carriage and I remember thinking, wow, this is the future of entertainment!

It’s fascinating to view storytelling from a digital perspective. I love to break the fourth wall in theatre and I think it’s so interesting how AR and VR have the ability to turn an audience into active participants. 

I began writing stories and reading them aloud in class when I was 10. That passion grew and grew until I decided to pursue English Literature and Creative Writing at University. 

As a writer, it’s exciting to see how technology allows big ideas to be manufactured and brought to life. There’s certainly no limit to the imagination in AR. 

At Arcade, I am being given the opportunity to get involved in upcoming projects by brainstorming new ideas, attending meetings with clients and learning about UX/UI design. 

In the coming weeks, I plan to write and edit articles for the Arcade website, and I also want to expand awareness of Arcade’s brand through marketing and social media.

I’m excited to see how AR and VR technology will progress in the future, it has great potential to enhance how we experience the world. I am fortunate to be surrounded by such talented mentors at Arcade. I learn something new and inspiring everyday!

Many thanks Emily, we hope you enjoy your time with us!
