We’re thrilled to welcome Christina, our new Creative Director!
She’s new to the team but not new to Frenzoo - originally she was a player and UGC fashion designer on Frenzoo.com, our web 3d world, and kept up as we made the transition into our Me Girl™ mobile games.
She’ll be leading all things design and creative - from UX, game design and art style through to Me Girl™ vision and branding.
We sat down for a mini Q&A on her first day:
What are you most looking forward to in the new role?
Learning and discovering what surprises and delights our players. And then working on game flow to make it a reality.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
In general, the world and people.
We live in such a dynamic and amazing world with so many different cultures and beliefs which are all so fascinating - I am inspired by those who dare to be different, those who dare to shine, those who fight for what they believe in and from those who pull through all challenges.
I am also inspired by people who I do volunteer work with and the people we work with, there is a wealth to be learned from those who battle through so many odds.
So why move from the fashion industry to gaming?
I love the fashion industry but at my heart I’m a creator and love technology - so the move feels like a good challenge and and my creativity can be utilized well in this industry!
What games have had the most impact on you over the years?
Wow, it all started with the The Sims, then The Sims online which was my first step into MMO’s.
The biggest game that has impacted me is definitely when Star Wars Galaxies launched, which kicked off a period in my gaming life that I truly cherish.
Then Second Life and later I discovered Frenzoo.com and then Style Me Girl which allowed for my inner fashionista to be unleashed. I play a lot of games and others I’ve loved include Mall World, Puzzle Pirates, Words With Friends and most recently Stardom.
What fashion brands do you admire most?
Fashion loves include Maison Martin Margiela, Alaia, Viktor and Rolf, Comme de Garcon, Barbara Bui, Vivienne Westwood, CK Calvin Klein and Armani Exchange.
But for my day to day, I love mixing and matching quirky items with everyday looks, feminine with the edgy, casual with the elevated.
A quote to live by?
"History will be kind to me for I intend to write it."
Thanks Christina and welcome!
